Victorian Fashions Coloring Book (Dover Fashion Coloring Book)
A feast of opulent styles for colorists and fashion devotees, this entertaining and informative coloring book includes a grand array of the splendid clothing style of the Victorian era. Each and every page offers a fascinating glimpse of the gloriously embellished gowns of this bygone age, all moderately researched and as it should be rendered by artist Tom Tierney.
This selection of 45 illustrations, adapted from the pages of such vintage fashions publications as Modes des Paris and Godey’s Lady’s Book, reveals in lovingly detailed vignettes a wealth of fashions from the years 1837 to 1877. Newlyweds Queen Victoria and Prince Albert open the selection of able-to-color line drawings in a portrait of formal evening wear. A stunning array of elaborate, narrow-waisted, full-skirted gowns follows. The ensembles, trimmed with all manners of lace, tassels, ribbons, and bows, feature dainty accessories such as flowered and feathered bonnets, fans, kid gloves, and parasols. Outfitted for riding, swimming, walking, and visiting, the well-dressed ladies infrequently appear with gentlemen in formal suits or smartly attired children.
