Regency Fashions - Free Vintage Images

These are very antique -- two fashion illustrations from 1813, which is during what is called the Regency era.  The first, with the fabulous blue cape, is a "morning dress."  The second is a gorgeous ball gown fashionable for the period.  It seems to be adorned with pearls and other "bling."

I've always thought the dresses of this period looked much more comfortable than the later Victorian styles!  I would actually wear either of these (somewhere).  These would have been fashionable right around the time Jane Austen was publishing her novels. 

These are drawings with watercolor, and the originals are a little "soft" in detail.
