Seeing how another follower sent a message of thanks today, I thought I might do the same.
This blog has become an invaluable source of inspiration and research for me. As a writer, I often place my stories in 1700-1900s. The clothing you share on here gives much insight to the fashions of those centuries and it saves me much time trying to find these beautiful kinds of dresses on my own. No amount of text research could make up for images of real thing. Even the occasional descriptions, details as small as what the clothing is made of, are so important for making stories time-appropriate and realistic. It is always the details I search for, and this blog gives me so many.
Because of that this blog has truly become one of my favorites: I always look forward to seeing new posts. Each one is a little peek back into the most intimate but visible part of history: the clothes on someone’s back. Great job and I hope this blog keeps going strong. -Uly
