Les Arts Decoratifs: Mode et Textile: 1715-1914 digital collection

If you haven't seen this site before, you should check it out now! Such a beautiful collection of historical costumes!


  1. Oh *swoon*! It doesn't matter how many times I see these garments, they still make me absolutely giddy with costuming wonderful-ness!

    I agree with you on the 2nd stays - those colours! They are equal-par with the first stays for me though. I'm such a sucker for gold and yellow! And that flossing across the front! Joy! What is the proper 18th century term for the flossing though?

  2. I really love last dress.
    I am planning to make a dress like this and i already have that fabric.


  3. Please, tell me from which museum is this revolutionary frock? Please, I must know it!
