Edwardian Fashion - Image Gallery 2

Like a kid in a candy store, I'm delighting in discovering more great examples of the fashion found in the Edwardian era! Just discovered the treasure trove found on Abiti Antichi, a wardrobe collected by Camilla Columbo which would be the absolute envy of those of us who are fans of period fashion! Thank you so much Camilla for sharing your collection with us!

These images can be found on Camilla's site: 1901-1908, 1909-1914

Can you choose a favourite?

Love the detail on this one.
Reminds me of this one that I love on Dame Maggie in Downton Abbey

When I think of Edwardian, I think of ecru...

  1. I landed on your Steampunk page and was delighted to see someone who appreciates the same timeframes, if you will, that I and my wife do.
    I wonder how many of us, if we could, would mind being transported via some time-machine to either the Victorian or Edwardian eras.

    "If I could create an ideal world, it would be an England with the fire of the Elizabethans, the correct taste of the Georgians, and the refinement and pure ideals of the Victorians."
    H. P. Lovecraft

    Anonymous~ Let me tell you; folks with our tastes are few and far between on Cape Cod! Would that I could find a fellow of such style to marry!

  3. Renee I do have a sense that there are more than a few of us out there who have a mindset or a connection with that energy if you might permit such a term.
    The Celts and even a character such as Queenie Turrill in Lark Rise as the village wise woman, and there were also village wise men also, however they spoke of the Wyrd and all of that and I have to think, going back to that term, ENERGY, that those who share our energy must someday, sooner or later, find their way to us.

    Grandmothers and Great Grandmothers told us of the "good old days" oh how I scoffed but they were right, just like mother was right.
    Fate call it what you will I have to believe that if we can't live in such a society we must make our own world, Good Luck to you and the author of this blog and to us all.

  6. I love this blog...and what a great new site for costume you steered me to!

    And Steampunk; such fun. For all the Steampunk afficianados who don't already know about Datamancer, take a look at his site, which is Datamancer dot net (I didn't know if I could put an actual link, so I didn't try). Datamancer proves a computer CAN be a thing of Steampunk Beauty...

  8. OMG I am wiping the drool off of my keyboard. I would love to swish in to work some day in one of those beauties. OK, maybe not work, but I would love to wear one to a fancy dress ball. Why do the actors get all the fun?

  9. Jenny~ Why not construct one (or two) and wear them out, anyway? Who knows? You may end up meeting others who share the same passion in your area of the world. You may even end up starting a group that meets just to wear pretty clothes and have fun! *^_^*

  11. I adore your site. I appreciate all the work you've done to make it such a beautiful place with so much great information and photos. I'm so glad I found it! My hobby is dressing miniature (and sometimes taller) lady dolls and my favorite period is the Edwardian style. This site is a wonderful reference for my work. Thanks for sharing it with us! My eyes were wide going through all the photos. Amazing!

    Hi! Glad you are able to use the images as a reference! I remember when I posted the 1st gallery of Edwardian fashion, as I was in awe of those outfits not knowing I would find additional ones. I've fallen under the spell of the Edwardian age too!

    Your hobby sounds great! I love dolls! I've had fun sewing some outfits for 18 inch dolls in the past so I can imagine a little of how much enjoyment you get from that!
