Vintage Women: Adult Coloring Book #4: Victorian Fashion Scenes from the Late 1800s
DescriptionJust before the turn of the century, women found out about the latest "handsome" and "nobby" style trends from the newspaper. Between the covers of this book, you will find 47 coloring pages showing more than 80 different examples of the tea gowns and walking dresses, evening costumes and dainty frocks that were popular in the United States during the late Victorian era - specifically, 1895 to 1899. All are lifestyle scenes, showing the newest styles drawn into a social situation or location. The definitive word on what to wear and how to wear it typically came via dispatches from Paris, which detailed the latest European fashions. This trend news was delivered on the women's page of the Sunday paper, where every aspect of the attire - color, cut, fabric and trim - was thoroughly described and illustrated. Although the outfits are all from a five-year span, the definition of "stylish" was constantly changing. Grand announcements about the current trends were regularly published in the papers beneath headlines like, "All About The Latest Fashions" and "Correct Cycling Dress." Take a look back to the Gilded Age, and give these clothes the color and verve they have been missing for more than a hundred years!
