About 1800's Dresses
Journey back in time to an era when women's clothing was feminine, flamboyant, and showed expert workmanship. 1800s dresses are a far cry from the casual, fast fashion of the present day. Vintage 1800s dresses have longer, fuller skirts, with dazzling bustles, ruffles, and layers. Bodices are often highly detailed and show off your feminine figure. Dresses from the early 19th century feature neo-classical designs that accentuate the bust and neck. Victorian-era dresses range huge hoop-skirted designs to the bustled "S" curve silhouettes of the latter part of the century. If you want a wedding dress that offers something different than the standard strapless gown, try a dramatic Victorian style. If you want a 19th century look but are not keen on wearing a true antique, you can use an 1800s dress pattern to make your own Regency or Victorian look. Whether you want to wear the real deal or simply desire a convincing replica, you can find a large inventory of 1800s dresses on eBay.
