18th Century Dutch Costumes

I came across this 18th Century traditional Dutch costumes on Pinterest and was instantly smitten with the color combination and subtle pattern mixing.

1800-1805 Regency Red Print Dress from England

1800-1805 Regency Red Print Dress from England

I have such an affinity for small uniformed prints in red and blue set against almost white backdrops. This British Regency era dress from The Met Museum features a wonderful print (I wish there were close ups!) because perhaps this is an embroidered pattern and not a printed one? Ahh, one shall never know unless seen in person! Where I'd Wear...

1820-1829 Regency Cotton Bodice Undergarment

When I first saw this Regency era bodice undergarment from the Victoria and Albert London Collection I for sure thought, that is SO modern! It has a very late 1940s early 50s look.

Many of the best dressmakers were French and the social elite would look at fashion plates to get ideas for new styles. The not so social elite would gather inspiration from these fashion plates and sew the dresses themselves.  Where I'd Wear It...

Aren't the pansies so sweet?  Where I'd Wear It Back Then Probably listening to Marianne practicing on the pianoforte while I worked on my needlepoint Where I'd Wear It Now Going on a...

My dream history closet would definitely have this beautiful Regency period cotton and silk lace gown. This dress is from the Costume Institute at The Met Museum. Where I'd Wear It Back Then A weekend ball (but of course!) where my BFF Lizzy Bennet and I can talk about how Mr. Darcy is totally pretentious, but also super handsome. Where...
