Today I want to post about great 1700's fashion and from France/England and America, so lets sit back and enjoy the great gowns! :)
Wonderful painting of two beauties of the day in the park with there wonderful walking outfits Ah so pretty and very 1770's :)
This is a quintessential French gown! just perfect for a ball or fancy dinner or wearing at court, I really love this great burgundy and white and black floral gown, this dress is highly ornate and I love it! Dress is from exactly from 1775 and in really great condition.
Wonderful floral silk shirt made in America 1770-73 this shirt is really awesome and very well made and in great condition and yep I want this very colonial shirt! Also wonderful silk quilted petticoat these where very popular in the 1700's mainly in England and America, they where also used under clothing as it would keep are elegant lady warm, and well you have to admit a lot of those homes or old castles like in England where cold and drafty so you needed warmth and what better way then a warm quilted petticoat skirt.
I know I don't often put mans fashion on here, but you have to admit this is a great one! And I love mans clothing from the 1600's-1848 this how ever is from around 1770-80 and is in great condition wonderful silk waist coat which is highly embroidered and truly is wonderful example of good mans clothing!
Now to the English outfit this great dark brown with gold trim ridding habit from 1750-59 this great ridding habit is very much in the military style that was so popular in the 1700's a lot of it was brought to style by Catherine the great who was extremely found of it, but she wasn't the first the first was Queen Christians in the 1600's who loved to wear military styled clothing and anything that was close to mans dress.
Well that’s it for today hope you enjoyed.
