Gowns Galore!


I had a lovely visit to the V&A recently to see the new fashion galleries. It's well worth a visit if you're interested in the history of fashion. I love the way they've put together costumes, paintings, furniture and accessories to give a flavour of the period. Here are a few Regency and Georgian examples for your delight! I can't help but think of Anne Elliot and Frederick Wentworth for the costumes above!

The costumes look wonderful, Jane. I suppose the bottom picture is of a court dress. How on earth did one manage it? Just getting through a door would be difficult, and getting into a carriage would be well nigh impossible!

Thank you, Elizabeth. Yes, I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to get around in a court dress!
