11 Regency Fashion Plates
Today we have a beautiful collection of Regency Fashion Plates! The Regency period was a time of change in fashion. Gone were the elaborate and restrictive corsets, panniers, and hoopskirts. In their place came a more natural look with softer fabrics and simpler silhouettes. These plates show some of the new styles that emerged during this era. I’ve also mixed in few images from the late 1800’s to early 1900’s, showing nostalgic images of regency costumed, or inspired, ladies and girls.
So technically this one is not regency, since it’s about 10 years after. But I am squeezing it in here, as I don’t have another spot for it and it’s pretty close! This amusing print, circa 1830, features a French actress in full ‘Queenly’ costume. She appears to be wearing a long light blue ribbon with perhaps some sort of medal on it. Check out that hair and the lovely dark blue Ermine trimmed gown!!
Pictured above is a cute Winter Lady with Dog Image! Displayed is a lovely young woman dressed in a rust colored Dress coat with matching bonnet. She appears to be taking her little dog for a walk in the snow. Such a nice Winter scene. A delightful Nostalgic Card!
Here is a Winter Lady with Letter Image! Shown above is a lovely young woman dressed in a long brown coat. She’s wearing a red and brown bonnet, and is holding a muff in one hand and a letter in the other. She is shown in a snowy landscape scene with a sweet leafy border. A charming Old Card!
Spring Empire Waist Flower Girl Images
Above is a pretty Vintage Spring Flower Girl Image!! This lovely young lady is dressed in light gray. Her long gown has a large white lace top. She sports a huge, fancy hat with loads of feathered plumes. The scene is framed up by some soft Pussy Willow branches in an oval shape. Such a pretty image for your Spring Themed Craft or Collage Projects!
This is another Vintage Girl with Flowers Picture! The image above portrays a young lady wearing a long white dress with large short sleeves. There is a small bow under the bodice. She is holding some violets in her hand. The picture is framed up by a lovely Violets Flower border.
Regency Style Dress with Top Hat
This is a lovely Vintage Fashion Plate Image! Featured is a pretty Regency Style lady wearing a long, rose colored gown and short green jacket with fur trim. She wears a tall Top hat and carries both a Pouch purse and parasol. So stylish. It is a great scrap piece!
Antique Regency Fashion Coloring Page
Here we have a fine Regency Ladies Coloring Page from the old Costume book that my friend Ted lent me. Shown are some ladies in their lovely Regency period empire Waist dresses. I’ve made this into a printable so that children (or grown ups!) can use it as a coloring page. Perhaps there are some young Jane Austen fans out there who would enjoy coloring this one!
