What an incredible book!!! This is so cool because if you search books on say, Amazon, you have no idea what you're in for exactly but you laid this out pretty thoroughly! XO Lauren-Blair www. I always learn so much about fashion-related history from your posts! I love the fine attention to detail, from the structure and lines of a garment to the seaming and embellishment. And don't even get me started on jewelry and accessories. The Edwardian era always reminds me of the Titanic and a time when fashion turned to a sleeker silhouette.
It was the turn of the century when anything was possible. I love this era just like the Victorian and Art Deco time periods. What's not to love? I love the fitted dresses and the hairstyles. Gibson girl is one of my personal favorites. I wish I had more excuses to wear it.

What a wonderful book, Jessica. I've been reading Nicky Albrechtsen's Vintage Fashion Complete quite a hefty volume , and am planning to read up on the individual eras in more detail. This book will surely go on my list. Many hugs, Ann xxx. I studied Worth at fashion college and absolutely fell in love with his style. I came across an unopened bottle of Worth perfume about 15 years ago from the 50s and just had to buy it.
It's in a Lalique bottle and comes with the original box. I'd love to have it valued now as I paid practically nothing for it! Oops, forgot to add that my favourite thing of Edwardian clothing is the menswear as womenswear.

I love that women began to wear ties! I love their use of lace, but then I love to look at all the Edwardian fashions, wearing them, not so much though. What a fabulous giveaway!
I love Edwardian fashions, and the way that they changed through the war year and moving into the s. This looks like a wonderful read, I'll have to keep my fingers crossed! That looks like a lovely book! I love fashion sketches, as they impart a drama and mood that doesn't come across in photographs. I love the Edwardian era as it was one that was a bit more relaxed than the stiff Victorian era, and yet still completely elegant. There was no loss of attention to detail with the fashions, even though they were more relaxed.
Thanks for the giveaway! The Artyologist. Oh awesome. I fell in love with Worth's Victorian era dresses years ago and have a soft spot for them still. I think I love the all white Edwardian looks the best. They are just so striking. And hats you could store a toaster in, of course. Hello, my dear, dear Jess. Everything had lace on.
There were those elaborate collars with hand-made lace trimmings and to know that it took over two months for a young gal to make that collar, with her fingers trembling over the delicate material, by the candlelight Call me a hopeless romantic, I won't fight it : Another thing and, this is not so fashion-oriented - walled garden. Back in those times, it was a peak of garden perfection. Mixing walk-over apple trees only half of meter tall - indeed with elongated and elegant roses that climb over hand-crafted iron arches.
A place called Heaven, to me!
What a wonderful book, and one that I had not previously happened across before which in itself is a bit of a wonder, as I spend so many nights getting lost on Amazon, haa ha! My favourite element of Edwardian fashion is the surface decoration and femininity that oozes out of practically every stitch. I also love the complete contrast between s fashion, and the Edwardian fashions of only a mere 10 years previously - I find that utterly fascinating. Hoping you are well Jessica, thank you so much for running a fabulous giveaway!
Good luck to everyone that enters! Jenny xx. I personally adore the Gibson Girl image, the amazing long hair, and I love the silhouette of little girls at the time which is the most flattering on my personal body type, but impossible to find for adults. I also happen to love ribbons and lace, which were big at the time.

For being really interested in about everything vintage and fashion history, I don't really know much about the Edwardian era. It hasn't exactly been my favorite. But I have to say that I like the narrower silhouette in the skirts after the bustle period. While I may not like the styles in general, I do love the femininity of the clothes.
