Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With over 350 engaging nineteenth-century photographs, this book provides irrefutable documentation of American women's fashions from 1860-1900. Clothing is separated into nine time periods based upon fluctuations in style. Extensively researched using period documents, chapters on undergarments, casual wear, sports clothes, common dress, evening attire, laundry, and clothing manufacture reveal the impact fashion had on the mental, physical, and social lives of our Victorian ancestors. Information about personal hygiene, cosmetics, jewelry, hairstyles, and the dating of vintage photographs is included.
