Journal des Dames et des Modes, 1829. 

One of my readers, Guacira (all the way from Brazil!), just sent this fashion plate and a few others to me.  Isn’t it beautiful!  It’s a big image, too, so open it in a new tab to see all the detail.  

Thank you so much to everyone who reads this blog!  You guys are so generous and supportive and you make running this tumblr a delight!  And thank you especially, Guacira, for sending this along.

These are beautiful little motifs!  I would really like to buff up my embroidery skills!

Ackermann’s Repository, Muslin Pattern, April 1829.

I have a question for you guys.  A few publications have “muslin patterns” which I assume are for embroidery.  They aren’t really fashion plates, but I think they are really lovely and fascinating.  If you like them I can post some more, if not then I won’t put any others up.  What do you say?
