Overview

High Fashion in Victorian Times: A Study of Period Costume with Pull-up Scenes by Andrew Brownfoot

Fashionable women spent hours each day changing between outfits suitable for every occasion or indeed for different times of the day and most styles were marvelously impracticable and difficult to move in. There was a growing campaign throughout the period for more practical "rational dress" but it was the end of the century before it gained wide acceptance. For men the change in style from showy extravagance to "general moderation" had come rather earlier. This book charts the changing fashions of the Victorian Era through the eyes of three diarists who were especially interested in their clothes. The costumes and the glittering social occasions which they attended are illustrated by pull-up scenes to cut out and glue together.,
