Ackermann's Engravings of Regency Walking Dresses from 1820

Hi everyone! I am so glad you are visiting my blog. Welcome to all the new followers and thank you for all of the kind comments. They are all so fun and inspiring.
My Legacy buttons have kept me busy. This week is the first time I am caught up! There will be a few stragglers but 99% are ready to be brought in. Can't wait till Thursday.
These beautiful etchings are from R.Ackermann's 1820 "Repository of Fashion".  They would be so pretty framed. What a great reference for costume and  period clothing. I know that some of you sew historically accurate clothing that is amazing. The soft colors,ruffles, ribbon bows and lace are sooo feminine.
Much love to each and everyone of you, Louise
