The Lady’s Magazine, November 1834. 

Fashions of London and Paris, Court Dress, January 1799. 

Would you EVER believe that this batshit crazy dress was accurate if you saw someone wearing it?  Proof positive that they wore some seriously bizarre gowns back then. 

Moniteur de la Mode, February 1847. 

I’m utterly in love with that blue gown, and the skirts on the yellow gown are quite lovely, too!

What a lovely and unusual outfit!  That bodice detail is lovely, and the bright yellow is such a nice pairing with the straw hat!

What a nice pelisse!  The color is so gorgeous, especially paired with the yellow lining (and matching bonnet!  Yay!). 

Gallery of Fashion, October 1797. 

I love the pairing of the yellow gown and the blue gloves, and that brown bonnet is adorable!

The Beau Monde,  May 1837. 

The fabric of that green dress is just gorgeous!

Ladies’ Pocket Magazine, 1824. Carriage dress and evening dress.

Beautiful!  The fashions of 1823-1825 are my absolute favorites.  By the way, if you aren’t following this tumbler you certainly should!  Especially if you are interested in the Regency period!
