Dressing Empress Elizabeth
& 1700's Fashion

Ladies who create period costumes are so extremely talented and the clothing they produce is authentic and gorgeous.
I have followed a few of these women through the years on their blogs and youtube channels and am constantly impressed.
So today I wanted to share with you some of the lovely creations.
This video is of Tessalina showing her recreation of an outfit worn by Empress Elizabeth of Austria.
It is just beautiful and so interesting to see how women dressed in bygone days.

And here is a girl dressing in an outfit created by Cazonetta dressing in the style of the mid to late 1700's.

I hope you enjoy these videos as much as I do.

Please take the time to say "Hello". I love hearing from you.


  1. Fascinating! I always wondered how they achieved the fullness at the hips. I don't think I like the look of the second one with all the hoop at the hips. The first one is lovely. I think my favorite though is the southern belle look with the hoop all the way around. The dress that Scarlett O'Hara wore at the BBQ scene is my idea of a dream gown. I agree that those who make period costumes are fascinating. I love the Downton Abbey gowns and dresses too. Have a great day.

  2. I'm so charmed by these videos you've posted, sweetest Annie, you truly filled my heart with joy !
    With so much gratitude I wish you a most wonderful weekend ever
    sending blessings to you


I love hearing your thoughts and your visits mean a lot to me.
