The clothing that families have saved over the centuries were usually those items that were special or particularly treasured. This blog – Trouvais – features samples of the most lush 18th and 19th clothing imaginable. Combined with luxury items of today, the site is a feast for the eyes.
Meg Andrews is another site worth visiting. Delectible clothing and items from the past are featured. Visiting the site makes you feel as if you have entered a museum.
David Brass Rare Books may seem like an odd site to feature as a fashion site, but its rare and illustrated colored books show images of people in the past. One can easily concentrate on the Regency period and have plenty to view. One image, which I have shown previously, is from a book entitled The Fashions of London and Paris, 1798-1810.
I must also brag a little about my site. I don’t feature commentary about every facet of fashion like Cathy Decker, but I have gathered an extensive list of links . You may click on Social Customs During the Regency Era in the tab above and scroll down to fashions, or view the fashion links to the right in my sidebar, where such gems as Vintage Textiles sit. You can also read my fashion posts at this tagged link: Regency Fashion. Enjoy!
Five Old Things showcases three posts of a trip to the Costume Museum in Bath. The three posts are heavy with images, like this one of an 18th century man’s coat, embroidered waistcoat and pants.
