Pink Saturday

Happy PINK Saturday!

I watched the movie "The Patriot" last night and drew inspiration for my pink post from the movie. They had some amazing clothes for the era. The craftsmanship was just beautiful. I am guessing if you had the money to pay for it! Most people probably wore much simpler clothes without the silk fabrics and embroidery.

Isn't this beautiful. I think you could wear this today paired with a pair of jeans and cowboy boots.

I am amazed at how WHITE the whites are. Really? How did everyone stay so clean back then? I think a lot of it may be the magic of Hollywood. I bet they didn't really stay so pristine day in and day out, even if you had servants and lived in the city.

This dress dates about 100 years later but I thought it was stunning.

This one is from the 1920's. I love the pop of pink flowers on the side and the fabric looks gorgeous. I am sure the ladies and gentlemen from the 1770's and 1880's would have been SHOCKED!

Thank you Beverly for hosting. Be sure to visit How Sweet The Sound to find all the pink links! Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend!

Happy PS, Sares! I love the dresses! I've always been attracted to vintage clothing. I like the patterns, and fabrics. The style is so feminine, like the back gathered jackets.

Enjoy your day,

Happy pink Saturday to you Sares.
The dresses are all so beautiful, so much work and very pretty and feminine. Imagine if we were still able to wear such beautiful dresses like this today.
Hope that you have a fabulous weekend

The ladies did tend to dress in style back then. I am glad we never had cloths like that. Too much.

Happy Pink Saturday. Lovely dresses and fabrics. Seeing them up close does make one wonder how'd they do any of it. All the fabrics . . . perhaps being a simpler fabric they were more breathable? Great post. Thanks, Jenn

Lovely collection of period clothing. I too love that period of history that the Patriot depicts. Happy Pink Saturday.

I like how the homes were decorated in that movie. Especially the sister-in-law's dining room. I want that eperger (spelling?) that was on the table. Happy Pink Saturday!

Terri Morse said...

I watched The Patriot last night too! Your photos of period fashion are magnificent. They knew how to dress in those days! Happy Pink Saturday! Hugs, Terri

I LOVE the 1920s dress! It is absolutely stunning! Thankyou for sharing these beautiful photos!

I love all these vintage fabrics! I'm sure all of the silk dresses were only worn by the very rich and probably only indoors. Still... And, you're right, that peplum jacket could be worn today with jeans and boots! Stunning, all of them!

I really like the last dress! Can't you just picture Lucy Nightingberg wearing that dress, Sareski? :) The last one with the roses on the side! :)

I have no idea where you find all these gorgeous fashions Sares but I am so glad you share them with us. They are all sooooo beautiful, and I adore that cream dress with the roses and that magnificent train.
Hope your Pink Saturday was all that you hoped it would be.

They're all gorgeous! And so beautifully made. I also wondered how they would manage to keep them so white? And silks are fragile...How did they wash them?...Now I really NEED to know these things! Lol!*winks* Vanna
