1799, by Ann Frankland Lewis. 

Well, I’m very sorry to say that this is my last plate done by Ann Frankland Lewis.  I saved one of my favorites for the last, as this color is painfully gorgeous.  Thank goodness Los Angeles County Museum of Art has preserved her beautiful illustrations (along with hundreds of other fashion plates!).  They are so lovely and accessible.  I imagine her carefully going through all of her fashion publications and picking her favorite.  I wish I knew her…

I haven’t been able to find any more information about her, which makes me sad, but hopefully one day I can unlock her story.  I hope you’ve enjoyed them.  Here’s a link to all of her plates that I have posted: Fashion Plates by Ann Frankland Lewis

1798, by Ann Frankland Lews.

What a BEAUTIFUL outfit.  Love the adorable sleeves, the trim, that cute little fringed/pommed belt, and the leaves in her hair.  Swoon!

Undated (but probably 1792) by Ann Frankland Lewis

You don’t see a lot of black in this period, but it looks really nice with these styles.  And what a charming little chapeau!
