Going back in time, let’s look at the 18th century outfits from the collection of Salisbury Museum. I am not very fond of the 18th century, so I took only a few photos of what I found interesting.
And first of all, it’s a male outfit. His green woollen coat and striped silk breeches date from 1780.
But what fascinated me most is his white shirt! Since shirts didn’t change that much until 1850s, it was a great opportunity to closely look at it and make mental notes for any male shirt I will make for my dolls in the future.
This open robe of dove grey damask silk brocade dates from 1750.
The rose silk quilted underskirt is from 1780.
Polonaise open robe of striped silk brocade. The fabric is from 1760, but the dress was made in 1780.
Cream silk which was embroidered with silk threads to be made into a man’s waistcoat, dates from around 1780.
