Im the dandy highwayman who youre too scared to mention
I spend my cash on looking flash and grabbing your attention
The devil take your stereo and your record collection!
The way you look youll qualify for next years old age pension!......


Im the dandy highwayman so tried of easy fashion
The clumsy boots, peek-a-boo roots that people think so dashing
So whats the point of robbery when nothing is worth taking?
Its kind of tough to tell a scruff the big mistake hes making...............Adam Ant Stand and Deliver

Today we spend our whole lives looking "casual" and never really ever get to "dress up" when I was very little I always wondered where the good clothes were!

Here is a new company that sews reproductions.... a German site called Reine Des Centfeuilles :love: I could not believe my eyes that they have reproduced the stunning dress and hat in the Magnificent Painting by Garnier!!!! The one of the lovely woman walking through the street, stopping to buy some roses.

I couldnt agree more. Even in the capital of fashion, all down to being simple, casual... All these styles, no rules, it gives you a sense of freedom and it is the easiest way to go but surely not the nicest. It must be very hard to make such gorgeous dress. Do they sell dresses on this site or make reproductions for some other purposes?

Author Catherine Delors had a post about 18th century court gowns this past week:

She mentions that this was at Versailles--was anyone able to go?

This is a little tangential, but if anyone happens to have a fondness for hats, the methods from 1830 probably weren't that far from our own period:

Manuel complet des fabricans de chapeaux en tous genres, tels...
Julia de Fontenelle, Jean-Sébastien-Eugène (1790-1842), 1830

Here's a reference work for hardcore clothes mavens:

http://books.google.com/books?id=_wE9AA ... q=&f=false
Dictionary of textiles
By Louis Harmuth
1920

So, do you know what ras de Saint-Maur was? Harmuth did and I'll bet you'll find lots of other obscure fabrics here as well.

No I didn't know there was a specific name but I did know there were wool/silk mixes used in the 18th century, I'm just note sure how often it was used. :)

[quote="Queens Honor"]So funny, I was going to ask if anyone had a photo of an 18th century wedding gown & then I saw the reference to the GRAND, GORGEOUS Wedding Gown with magnificient hoops measuring 2 meters across - EXTRAORDINARY! This is what I'm talking about - if I was going to wear one of these beautiful creations then I would OWN IT and be taking up an entire hallway with my lovely garment.

[i]Absolutely Me too! And preferably with a long flowing train as well........[i][/

I think this is a Garnier composition from 1787 called, 'A fashionably dressed woman in the arcade of the Palais Royal'...in other words, it is just a girl.....I don't think it's of anyone in particular.

If she was walking about the Palais Royal, she could very well have been a courtesan, which may be a subtext of the painting.
