I found some old magazines at my mother's , dating back to the year 1800. I wanted to share these pictures with you, they may interest you.( you may click on the picture to enlarge)
This is a women magazine with fashion and crafts. Let see the fashion !
Ladies and children wear.
It was surely not confortable for the girls to play in these garments.
The elegants.
Knitting some shawls for the winter.
Some more hats.
Next time, i will show you the crafts!  wishing you a lovely sunny week end!

We think it takes a long time to get ourselves and the children ready for an outing now, can you just imagine the project it would be back then.

Hello Catherine!
Oh my...can you imagine dressing like this every day! I know they wore more simple things around the home but can you imagine working in the garden wearing these long dresses. I'm such a 'tom boy' that I would have ripped my skirts working in the garden and wore bare feet...I would have been considered scandelous I'm sure! Worse yet can you imagine being a child in those days! I love the olden days and the more simpler way of life ...BUT...give me my shorts and T shirt and bare feet (other than when collecting eggs) and I'm happy ;) I hope you are having a wonderful weekend mon amie...Maura :)

I can't imagine!! I am so informal most of the time, wearing shorts and flip flops as I go the the market.

Happy Weekend

Se sont des modes merveilleusement dessinées. J'admire de pages en pages dans ces ouvrages les détails somptueux des broderies et autres guipures.
