yummy late 18th cen linkage
Still sickly, still ruffling. Pretty boring really.

My sickie time has been less boring than it might have been though thanks to some cool resources linked on my Friend's List this weekend:

Journal des Luxus und der Moden - courtsey of jenthompson
My favorite so far is this one - I MUST make this hat. I like the reticule too.

Click "Blättern" to browse through each year/month. Look for the entry that says "Innhalt" for the fashion plates. Most months have 2 fashion plates and one decorative furniture pic, hit the arrow button at the top of the image page (when it says 1/2 or 1/3) to view all the images from that month. Jen also suggested using "Suche", (try robe, redingote, caraco, turque, etc.) Looking by month is a bit tedious I'll admit but I didn't want to miss anything! Thanks much to Jen for the link and instructions on how to use it!


Museo del Traje - courtesy of hohenstein
To search go to "catalogo", then type in "jubon" in top space. Click "buscar" (search), "ficha completa" for the info page, then "ampliar imagen" for more/larger photos. Thanks for the link A!
Lots of interesting 18th cen & Regency stuff so far, including this c1787 beauty:

Can't see the 1787 item - error on the page. I've been to that museum, so am interested in what's available - no catalogue, no photos in the shop!

Stupid museum links! Here, I've uploaded it to my site so you can see...pretty...

I found it in that search for "jubon".

I hate that, no postcards and no books. It's just mean! :P

Look at it this way, it's keeping you in one spot, getting the rufflin' done.
*sending some Hot Cinnamon Spice tea your way*

It's true, I don't think I would have gotten the ruffles done without this forced umm... ruffling. Thanks!

Ooo! Great resources! I've been feeling the redingote love lately.

Me too... almost enough to pick up the one I abandoned last year. :P

Thanks for sharing the links and instructions. At this rate, I'm never going to get to bed. ;p

Mmm, yum, I started out liking mid-18th C, but my preferences tend to go later and later... Must get myself a redingote, mmm
jennylafleur From: jennylafleur Date: January 20th, 2009 01:51 am (UTC) (link)
My preferences keep getting later too. There is just something about light fabrics, big hair and even bigger hats! :>

OMG (sorry for the overexcitement if you already knew this), this must have been the inspiration for the redingote in the duchess!

The coat, the collar, the pink skirt and the HAT!

Could be! The hat in the fashion plate is better though. :P
