Jane Austen Clothing Regency Fachion Plates, Early 1800's. Free clip and instant art.

Welcome to you all. Thank you for all your well wishes. Luckily, being careful has paid off My back is doing much better .So grateful it doesn't hurt to sit at my desk and computer aa much. How convenient a laptop would be!
Isn't October going fast?
This post was in my drafts so I have something for you today.  I can post without spending a lot of time at my desk. The pictures and fashion plates are from early 1800's. The ones with the large puffy sleeves are circa 1830. The others are earlier and are Regency fashions. Jane Austen era clothing. The first one and the oil are  my favorite's.
I have been thinking of doing a give away. It would be so fun to put together a collection of goodies or buttons.My only concern is shipping costs over seas. Any hints about doing a give away are welcome.
I am so very happy that you have come for a visit. Welcome to all my new followers. It makes it so fun to blog and share all the pictures.
Much Love, Louise

Portraits from 1700's, 18th century Women in opulant clothing Marie Antoinette time period

Hi everyone! Welcome to new and returning visitors alike.
 So many of you like the 18th century clothing and portraits. It was time to have that as a theme of the day. The wealthy women of Marie Antoinette's time had such amazing clothing. Wealthy being the important part of the equation. The paintings make me want to play dress up! It would be so fun to wear an accurate ensemble of that time.  Once in awhile I have come across blogs that are focused on period costuming. I did not keep track of them so any blogs you might want to suggest are welcome.  These lovely ladies are so feminine. A perfect element to enjoy or use in a creative endeavor.
Your comments have been the best. Thank you for your continued support. 
Much love to each and everyone of you, Louise
This is a favorite one today. She would look so pretty in a gilt frame.
