So on this late saturday night I thought I would post some wonderful dresses of the 1700's and I hope you all enjoy :)
Wonderful painting of a real beauty of the day with her powdered wig and her very stylish Empire/Regency dress, as you can tell she is very fashionable in this white muslin and lace dress with blue ribbons, she is the picture of elegance and you got to love her big pearl earrings, I know I do, painting is from around 1789-95.
Wonderful light blue and cream colored brocade silk dress from 1765-70 made in America this great colonial dress was very well made and as we can see is still in great condition, I can imagine the lady who made this dress most likely got the dress idea from an English fashion doll as French fashion was not as conservative looking as English, but both English and French fashions I love I see nothing wrong with either.
Beautiful yellow silk with gold trim stays with detachable sleeves the neat thing about this pair of stays is it so resembles a bodice or top to a dress of the day except its for under neath instead of on top, also the detachable sleeves I have seen a pair of stays like this in a book that had antique 1700's fashion the garment in that book was from the Kyoto Museum anyway back to this awesome stays they are from the 1760's and lace up in the back and have a fake lace up in the front in a faux front heehee.
Wonderful gorgeous cream and blue silk dress with embroidery stomacher everything about this grand 1770's dress is original and in great condition, I so wish this dress was mine, it truly is beautiful :)
Beautiful cranberry red dress from around 1780-87, this great dress is really pretty even though its simple day dress with ruffles instead of lace but we have to remember how very expensive lace was back then of course not as expensive as it was in the century before, but still pricy, but on an everyday dress like this you need not spend extra money for lace for it, cause you can style it up grand with out as you can see this dress is also paired up with a nice but older apron from like 1740-60, this older apron is highly embroidery is just great and even though its an older piece a wise lady of the day would know it would be smart to use this beautiful item again and again I know I would heck I would be darn happy and proud to have it :)
