A beautiful blog on 18th and 19th century dress

Images via Hats & Laces

Hats & Laces is a Tumbr blog full of pictures of beautiful dresses (swoon!) focusing mainly on the 18th and 19th century. I completely fell in love with this dress from ca 1885: the colors, the ribbon details, the flower patterned stripes, … Maybe I should have been a period drama actress :-)

There was no background information, so I don't know where this dress is from. That's a typical problem of sites like Pinterest or Tumblr: sometimes images are reblogged so often that the original image credits get lost...

Beautiful... If acting doesn't work out, you can always try getting in the costume-making/design process behind the scenes of such productions ;)
