Overview


From hoop skirts to bustles: a practical book that's also fun to color
An era that saw women's fashions go from hoop skirts to softly draped bustles, the late Victorian and Edwardian periods also provided well-to-do ladies with elegant day dresses featuring leg-o'-mutton sleeves and lavish evening wear with plunging necklines.
Twenty-nine colorable illustrations of fashionable apparel from the 1860s through 1910 depict — among other outfits — opera capes, frock coats, top hats, and knitted swimwear for men; and for the ladies, walking suits with narrow skirts, bathing outfits that completely cover the figure, and billowing bloomers for bicycling.
A dazzling collection for theatrical designers, fashion historians, and style mavens; delightful entertainment for colorists of all ages.
