The 1880s in Fashionable Gowns: A Visual Guide to the Decade

Fashion history is really fascinating, and if you like the history of clothes it doesn’t get much more fun than the late 19th century. Mimi Matthews has been working her way through the century decade by decade showcasing the various women’s looks as they changed over time. Here is her post on the 1880s, which I have a particular interest in; I had to do a lot of this research myself while writing my novel Doppelgänger. It would have been nice to have this blog to refer to! Enjoy the analysis and the wonderful photos.
