There are probably more. I hope there are more! If you run a historic fashion blog please send me a message and I will add you! There are lots of great tumblrs that post historic fashion among their other things, but I’m not including those here. These are tumblrs that SOLELY focus on historic clothing. Reblog and get the word out! I want to know ALL of the historic fashion blogs!
I’m also posting a permanent link to this on my sidebar and I’ll update it every time I find out about a new one!
damesalamode- 18th and early 19th century fashion plates (my tumblr)
Is there a historic fashion tumblr list out there anywhere? I know there is one for history in general, but I don’t know if there is one for fashion specifically. If not, I’m going to make one. Anyone done it before?
Do you have any images of 1770s (or thereabouts) riding jackets for women, perchance?
Unfortunately there are very few fashion plates from the 1770s. Most of the publications don’t come around until the 1780s, and for some reason riding fashions are quite rare in plates. The only ones I have from the 1770s are this one and this one. All of my riding habit plates are here. Interesting how many of them are green, huh?
Oh darn it! I meant to say empire waists which of course me knowing nothing about fashion decided that they were at the same time.. oops!
Well THAT I can certainly help you with! I post lots of empire waists and have got several on the docket for the next few days. If you want a lot of them right this moment, check out all the plates I’ve posted from 1800-1810 and all the plates from 1810-1820. Enjoy!
I love this blog! If it's possibly, can I get some Edwardian period plates?
Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately I am not a collector of late 19th and 20th century fashion plates, so I don’t have any in my files. You might enjoy Old Rags , who posts some Edwardian stuff occasionally.
