Victorian Silhouettes

My version of a Victorian fashion timeline. It may not be 100% correct but I think I got the basic dress shapes right. I also realize that the Victorian era ended in 1901, but 1902 fitted better with my 5-year spacing.
I have also posted in smaller lots for easer viewing as well as the entire collection

I love the design of Victorian dresses. It's so cool how much they changed over the course of the time period, but each one is still elegant and pretty.

All beautiful and eloquently feminine! If only modern fashion designers can be inspired by the classic and sophisticated feminine curvature of traditional garb. Instead they choose to make boxy shapes and little design as possible.

My grandmother was born in 1887, Died in '96

And she had a dress just like that!! (thought it was her wedding gown) :P
So you're completely accurate!
