LADY'S RATIONAL COSTUME: Pattern 1710: Eton Jacket & Pattern 1711: Lady's Rational Walking Skirt

Two patterns from 1895 show new and daring developments for women - adventure in the mountains AND a skirt that allowed such activity through easier walking.

Madame Weigel was busy in the Swiss mountains at this time, and may well have developed this outfit to wear herself. She loved sports for women and encouraged women to get out and about just as she did!

This postcard is A5 in size (148 x 210mm), printed on quality 350gsm card with a glossy finish. The reverse side is printed with a pattern description.
