A charming wardrobe of Victorian fashions--
everything from a lace-trimmed wedding dress to bathing attire
This book and CD-ROM set covers nearly sixty-five years of Victorian costume history. Accurate representations of more than 100 full-color outfits are included, many by such noted designers as Worth, Paquin, Révillon, and Dickins & Jones. Clothing for woman includes fur-trimmed cloaks, jackets, coats, and resort wear. For men, there are plaid trousers, ruffled shirts, and other fashionable apparel. Pinafores and sailor suits are depicted for children, with top hats, walking sticks, bonnets, parasols and additional period accessories complementing the stylish wardrobes.
Meticulously rendered for computer or traditional cut-and-paste use, the illustrations are accompanied by an additonal eight-page section of text that provides background information on the period. Specific notes comment on fabrics and details of each ensemble.
