This is one of my all time favorite magazine covers. And I do think it is interesting that this wonderful illustration was on a magazine targeted toward the average woman who sewed her own clothes, rather than on a magazine geared toward the high fashion set.
The Delineator was published by the Butterick Pattern people, and each month it featured the latest sewing and embroidery patterns along with short stories, recipes and articles on home decorating. The magazine was very popular through the 1920s, but in the 30s they took a new direction, featuring less fashion and more articles. Unfortunately, the magazine did not survive. In 1937 in was sold to Hearst, who combined it with their Pictorial Review.
