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.
