The 1800s saw some of the most diverse ranges of fashion. The late 1800s were known as the Victorian Era (because Queen Victoria’s 64 year reign was during this time), and were broken into three periods. Early Victorian fashion (1837-1860) was known for the look of “demure prim gentility” - full skirts, lavishly trimmed bonnets, and ringlet hairstyles. Mid Victorian fashion (1860-1880), which is depicted here, saw many changes because of the invention of the sewing machine. It started with full skirts that had a slightly flattened front, which eventually lead to the use of a bustle, which put nearly all of the emphasis on the back of the dress. Late Victorian fashion (1880-1901) was the era of puffed sleeves. Known as “Leg of Mutton” sleeves, they sprouted high above the shoulders. By 1895 the sleeves swelled into enormous puffs similar to those of 1833. It's interesting to note how late Victorian women embraced the sharper tailored jacket fashion which gave them a different posture with a more confident air reflecting the ideals of early female emancipation.
