In this post, we will continue discussing the general looks and styles of fashion from the second half of the 19th century. This section is by far my favorite! Not only have I made more gowns from this time period then any other, but I find the styles and looks to be the most fascinating and complex. Just a reminder that these videos are meant to be a very brief and general overview. It does not take into account the various sub styles and looks that occurred along sides these general styles. But it is a great place to start!!!
