Pretty Purple Fashion Lady!

Today I’m offering a beautiful Purple Fashion Lady! This one was part of a set that I picked up, although this one didn’t have a date on it, some of the others were from the 1890′s. This is actually an ad for a ladies sewing pattern. This was apparently called a Ladies Summer Toilette. Oddly enough this one looks mostly black and white to the eye, it has a slight tinge of purple to it, but when I scanned it turned deep Purple. I thought it was a fun change, so I left it that way! Great to use for some Wall Decor for a Sewing Room! You might like a similar Vintage Fashion Plate, a lady with a fancy Tea Gown from HERE.

  1. I love the beautiful things you share here. I particularly liked the coffee spoons and pot you shared not too long ago. I was wondering if you have ever come across any vintage pictures of musical instruments or sheet music. I would like to create something with a lute or similar stringed instrument for a friend. Thanks for all the beautiful pictures and ideas and for taking the time to share it.

  2. Lovely, thank you

  3. What a wonderful image – thank you so much Karen

  4. I started sewing about 6 months ago, so can’t imagine trying to craft an outfit like this. I’m still on the “easy” patterns. I will enjoy hanging this in my sewing room though. Thanks Karen!
