Journal des Demoiselles 1878

Already a while ago I was asked if I would like to share some of the old fashion plates I have.
Of course I would! Unfortunately most are too large for my small scanner and I don’t want to damage them, but I do what I can. Additionally you can already find so many scans on the interweb, so if you are searching for good scans you might want to check if someone else already uploaded what you are searching for.

Here are the colour plates in my “Journal des Demoiselles” from 1878. Unfortunately some are missing, you can find all plates (and the text as well) here. - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 VII - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 VIII - Journal d Demoiselles 1978 V - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 I - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 II - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 III - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 IV - Journal d Demoiselles 1878 VI


I hope you like them, see you soon,

  1. Wunderschön, danke für’s Teilen! Besonders die Hüte haben es mir angetan, muss mich dringend mal mit Hüten und ihrer Dekoration beschäftigen, so ein kreatives Feld mit vielen Möglichkeiten… liebe Grüße!

  2. Lustigerweise haben solche Kleider an der Saum-Innenseite etwas, das sich “Besenborte” nennt. 🙂
    Ist allerdings weniger für die Straßenreinigung gedacht, sondern um den Dreck vom Kleid fernzuhalten und damit man sich das Futter nicht so schnell durchscheuert.

  3. Ja, Hüte machen wäre schon was tolles und ich stell es mir gar nicht so schwer vor. Aber jetzt noch ein Hobby mehr? Ich glaub ich halt mich erst einmal zurück.

  4. It’s so interesting ro look at these drawings, these scenes that are in the same time cotidian and also surreal, seen from our point in time. Thanks for sharing them!

  5. Yes, to look at these and to study past fashion is one thing, to become aware that this was in fact a part of every-day life is another. And this applies to many things. I think we will never fully understand how the world used to function in past epoches, simply because we cannot recreate is, no matter how hard we try.
