Wonderful embroderiedy shirt with silk ribbons from around 1615-25. This lovely linen shirt with all this embroidery is from the Victoria and Albert museum, I have posted a similar shirt from the 1610’s on here before it was also form the Victoria and Albert museum.
Ah yet another dress from the Victoria and Albert museum ah I love them! Ok this wonderful heavy silk dress with beautiful floral pattern and a wonderful lace stomacher and fine lace at the sleeves and a wired lace fontange, this wonderful gown is from 1690-99.
Now to some paintings of ladies from the 1600’s :)
Wonderful painting of Margaret of Austria in a lovely black silk and linen dress this gown is still very reminiscent of the 1500’s very Tudor/Elizabethan looking but just right for this little girl, this gown is from around 1600-10, I know its not very spring like sadly but I had to add it in.
Ok this one will make up for the black dress up above, painting of Anne of Denmark 1605 this dress is very grand and very spring like with the white silk and silver embroidery and remember they used real silver back then wow :) Lots of pearls draped on this dress and lovely rosette ribbons of pink and blue and tight princess waist and lovely high lace collar this dress is just grand and very Elizabethan if you ask me, her hair is piled high a trend queen Elizabeth started and has a jeweled hair ornament.
Wonderful painting of a beautiful girl named Susanna Huygens in a 1630’s white almost silver satin gown this gown just shines luxuriant fabric with fine lace low cut with ruffles and fine princess waist on this lovely gown.
Ah another dress with super puffed sleeves this dress is all so 1630’s I love the peach colored silk and the princess waist, this dress is just gorgeous, and what a lovely lady too :)
Now to the 1700’s, I just love this time in fashion, now don’t get me wrong I love the 1600’s just as much, but I hope you will enjoy this post with all the spring time clothes :) And like I said some will be long some will be short but its all worth it to see such loveliness if you ask me.
