18th century Maid Costume – Inspiration

I’ve been interested in working class dress lately. And more specifically 18th century maids costumes.

searching the net I’ve found lots of pics of pretty outfits and great pattern mixing. Here are some of the ones I found.

  1. Ja, fram för mer vanligt folk! 😀

    Vill du porträttera en svenk så skulle jag titta på Pehr Hilleströms målningar – man ser ibland en viss skillnad i detaljer som tygval och så mellan länder. Boken ‘Möte med Mode’ är också bra.
