I suppose the ladies clothing from the French court of the 1770's was once very wonderful but totally no longer functional, the English women's fashions of the 1820-forty's used to be also beautiful in it can be flowing design. I might wear the patterns of the 1930's-40's. I used to collect antique garb as a teen and all of my outfits were from the 30's via forty's, suits, jackets, slips, mattress jackets, gloves hats, it used to be bizarre to be a teen and costume that manner but I adored the stuff and that i could to find really good deals at boot sales, swap meets and thrift retailers.I still have a few women swimsuit jackets in storage, most now have moth holes and should be thrown out. My grandfather got here of age for the duration of the 1880's he stated that used to be the most stunning time when women really appeared beautiful, the colossal hair and hats and the tiny waists,tiny parasols to maintain the solar off of them. I could spend the whole day watching at customs in the museums, simply love that stuff. Appears the folks a couple hundred years in the past had been very tiny as the entire old customs appear like they had been made for children no longer adults.
