Louise of the Netherlands, Queen of Sweden and Norway by Johan Christoffer Boklund, 1861 Sweden, Nationalmuseum (Stockholm)
Papier-mache Halloween costumes for children or teens, 1919 US, Ladies’ Home Journal
(Left to right) “Showing the Ruddy Apple”, “Brilliant Wheatfield”, “Autumnal Beauty of the Cosmos”.
I’m not sure what this is a reference to, but I’m guessing maybe the Three Graces? Could they be Aglaia (wheatfield), Thalia (flowers) and Euphrosyne (apples)?
to-reign-in-hell asked: This isn't a request for pictures, but I was wondering if you knew of any sites that have historical patterns for sale.
Sure I do! But it really depends on what you mean by historical. What era? Do you have a specific century (or even decade) in mind? For men or women? Are you talking about strictly period patterns that were actually in use then, or are you okay with ones that are created in a period accurate way by modern individuals?
satans-handmaiden asked: I guess I meant post-Civil War American clothes. Thanks anyway, though!
I definitely have post-Civil War American clothes!
satans-handmaiden asked: Do you have anything from the American Old West?
Like what the settlers would’ve worn before the west was really a settled area? I couldn’t say that I do, sorry!
ghost-plot asked: Hats! Yes. I love hats :)
Me too! :D

familydutyhonor asked: The State Duma was an elected representative assembly within Russia from 1906-1914. It was the closest they ever came to having a parliament during the Romanov dynasty.
Thank you very much! I had no idea. How fascinating!
