I know that winters were much colder than now.
Surely they had adjusted their clothes to the weather and seasons.

My Architecture Professor said that in Elizabethan times they were just starting to come out of a little ice age. so the clothing was much heavier. They did not always wish to be wearing coats so the fashions were heavier. Then, while the warming was increasing the clothing gradually got lighter and now we dress as we do in Aug. People were not tourtureing themselves then, and we dress lighter now so as not to torture our selves. Ps. The last blue robe de Francaise is mine. I do need that beautiful blue dress.

Yes, I heard that there was a warm age around early middle ages, then a cooler until XV. century, but I did not know that there was a cool season after that. Maybe this is one of the reasons of the horrible road-system of the XVII-XIX centuries??

Elle, that blue dress is my dream! :biggrin:

I know that winters were so heavy that there was huge number of people dying from it.

* edit* This is Hellou_Librorum, I have found a picture of the same striped Robe a la Francaise.

I love the white and pink one Such a delicate feminine material. I just thought that it has been gradually warming since the 1600's until today... it was 105, and so humid. you almost cannot bear to wear more than a swim suit with some shorts, or a loose dress over a wet bathing suit. I went to Versailles in 1975 in late July. It was very comfortable in jeans and a 3/4 sleeve top. My Mom went 4 or so years ago in July and complained about the oppressive heat and no air conditioning, how hot and in misery she was. When I was growing up we had no Air Conditioner in our house. No body I knew had one. Now it seems it is a Major Necessity. I think winters were cooler, and summers were cooler too. In the 1700's ladies dressed as in the white and pink, did their hair, wore wigs stockings and shoes, no flip flops, and they were comfortable with no airconditoning. I am thinking it did not rise above 80 then. and then they went out under trees to cool off. opened all the big windows. What do you mean about the roads Anouk?

So the climate was different indeed. That is information worth knowing.
Of course that now is different, global warming after all.

Maybe the cause of the bad road system could be the cool weather... with rain or frozen soil :?: Maybe?

I have one dress that is little similar to this dream dress. I will take a picture and post it for you to see, that dress is so unusual and old-fashioned but it can be wore in public so I bought it. :drunk:

I adore the yellow English dress. It's amazing the radical change in ladies fashion after the Revolution and further. So loose and lighter, no stiff paniers and the like. I think Marie Antoinette would of loved it!

I hate the change in the men fashion after the revolution. No more wigs, unfixed hair, whiskers (if this is the right word) – I hate it! :angryfire: :angry5:
