Ackermann’s Repository, Morning Dress, March 1810. 

Feedback time!  Do y’all like it when I do these zoomed shots in addition to the main plate?  As a costumer, I find things like this incredibly valuable since I frequently miss the details- especially when I zoom by something on Tumblr.  I can’t do it on all of my fashion plates since many aren’t high enough quality, but on these where I can zoom and still keep clarity, do you like it when I include the detail images?

I MUST HAVE THEM BOTH!

Love the pelisse and bonnet of the girl on the right!  And note the length of the skirts- have fun keeping those clean!

Another coffee filter dress!  These were all the rage in the early 1820s :)

(Seriously though- can you imagine the WORK that went into making and applying all those little ruffles?)

Pretty!

Oh what a sweet little bonnet and lovely pelisse!  This looks like a simple enough outfit to make- perhaps it should to into my to-make queue!

Wow!  Look at all those accessories!

What a nice little outfit!  Nice detailing on the sleeves of the spencer, and I’m a big fan of the soft hat.
