Romanticism emphasized on sentiment and feeling; hence, the rejection in
classical clothing from the previous centuries. Rules that govern creative
work take away from indiviudality! Romantics continue to rebel against
anything that restricted artistic expression. It has always been imagination
over reason tto express one another and the senses. After 1820, romanticism
added to dress with historical antecedents thatthe next couple of decades.
In England, the romantic period waas playeed out through the previous
ruling. Queen Victoria saved us all in 1837. She will rule for an eeternity--we
hope! The Queeen impacted fashion through color and silhouette.
In France, as Louis XVII rose in power, he revived styles from earlier
monarchial periods and presented the idea of costume balls. As the revolution
came about by Charles X, working clothes was worn to express the rebellious
spirit of Romaticism. This impacted fashion, here, at this time.
In the United States, westward expansion begun and the government is in
full control. Cotton is important to the southern economy; hence, slavery
flourished. Abolitionists flourished too and also fought for women's rights.
This conversation concluded the Civil War. This impacts fashion
tremendously in construction, color, and accessibility. Even as the U.S.
becomes independent from England, they still invited fashions from abroad.
Women are expected to have a modest role; hence, compared as delicate,
fragile, and decorative. Women, believed to be more emotional than men,
were idealized as the muses of artists. Some, like Elizabeth Barret Browning
and Mary Shelley, achieved recognition as artists in their own right. Women
are also expected to follow the morals of this time, and placed the role of
guardians of family and community virtue, and the educators of the children.
This gave the idea of women being deserving of a wider role in public affairs.
However, for now, dress reflected the perception of women as weak and
decorative. Eventuaally becoming more modest and subdued.

THE NOW . . .
FASHION Women's dress is increasingly fussy and decorative, as

skirts became fuller for wider hips, an emphasis on
shoulders and bust, and the waistline gradually

TRENDS descendeding to the natural waist and becomes
narrow, severe corseting and petticoats return.

Instead of the round waist, the bodice
waistline is taking on a V-pointed form to
better contour the body and make the
illusion of a feminine shape, as well as
contrast from our current rounded, full
skirts. This is what's in! Enough with the
rise in waistlines. Add a belt or custom
slashes for more emphasis on the waist.
The skirt has changed gradually over time.
The hemlines are starting to rise; hence,
they are falling a bit above the anke or
shorter (talk about the opportunity to
show off our new shoes!). The skirt is now
tighter at our hips and gradually flare to
fullness at the bottom--oh la la!

THE sleeve for the evening. It's a
spherical sleeve that was gathered in the
armhole. Where a gauze over it for added
finesse and less exposure!
Gigot Sleeve
This is the fullest sleeve of the period.

Are you a simple woman? This sleeve only
is full at the shoulder than narrows down
all the way to the wrist. A subtle beauty--
you may say.

This sleeve is full to the wrist witht a

intervals for a feminine touch.

This sleeve is inspired by the straight

Fashion NOW Foretells . . .

With the protests of women about the restrictive fashions in tight stays and
corsets, we forecast looser and lighter garments. But, volume will REMAIN.

We see a pant at the rise of the next season. We are all about the flow in
dress and that consists of full sleeves, lace trimmings, and full skirts up to
the ankles. This pant will have us feel and look independent and powerful.
On the contrary, to keeep the fullness in dress, the looser and lighter
garments might have more structure and support underneath, and at our
forfronts. New corsets are on the way. The silhouette and accentuating of
a body part of the women will be new and different. No more shoulders
and small waists, but flat tummies and full bottoms! Is your closet ready?


Technology for producing woven textiles
are now well established. Specifically,
lace machines are more sophisticated;
therefore, lace is now more affordable
and accessible in wide and narrow
widths. Another advancement was the
powerdriven knitting frame to produce
seamless hoisary.
Ready-to-wear clothing grows and
becomes more accessible! Women can
only get corsets and cloaks ready-made.
Fashion plates become a big part of our
magazines to tell us the fashion trends
of the time. Keep up! Read and observe
them thoroughly.




The petticoat keeps the shape of the ever-
growing-wide skirts and smooths it all around.

Rather like a corset, stays provide support and
shape in our figure. They can be worn
underneath a dress or over a clouse to
accentuate our natural curves. The tighter, the
We wear them wide, knee length, and with
short sleeves. The less fabric, the less you'll
see, and the more shape we will receive!

The drawers remain the same in construction
with the addition of frill or lace at the hem--
cute! Everyone needs a pair.

Queen Victoria impacted the Romantic era as she just becomes queen. Her two
biggest contributions can be summed up in two words: black and white.

The first event that
showcased Queen Victoria's
impact on fashion is when she
married her love, Prince
Albert. Brides can wear any
color, but she chose white
with the accent of orange
blossoms in her hair. She
continued to wear white
instead of the red ermine robe
of state. She set up the color
white to be a symbol for
innocence and romance. Even
with white becoming the
standard, orange was also
considered as fashionable.
In general Queen Victoria
was a conservative dresser
compared to other royals. She
was influential in taking
general fashion down a notch.
It is now about flamboyance,
subdued, and demure.
Black. When her love, Prince
Albert, passed, the Queen
wore black. This set the trend
to be common for mourning
and for the future of political
conflicts. Clothing for these
events were now elaborate.


Technology is now advanced in
producing woven textiles. Hence,

machinees that produced lace
were much more sophisticated.

Lace now comes in wide or
narrow trimmings, which are
relatively economical. You have to
buy them to add to that gorgeous
night gown you have in your


Roses scream romantic, so they
were used as patterns on dresses,

coats, and purses.
We were also honored with the
advancement in powerdriven
knitting frame that granted us
seamless hoisary.The leg will now
look smooth without any seams!

Talk about luxe.


Romanticism is connected with emotions. It
focued on feeling and intuition rather than
reason and order. The erratic and
uncontrollable power of nature concluded with
a palette of earth tones and neutral beauty of
the world around us: sunsets, shipwrecks,
solitude, and of course, lo-o-ove.
