C19th & C20th Costume History Children's Pictures in Fashion History

Pages Below are of C19th Girl's Costume Colouring-in Pictures

I've studied costume drawings from a book I have dated 1930 and made similar drawings using felt pens.  These produce a heavier outline suitable for children to colour in and keep within lines. If you click on the costume history thumbnails they enlarge into A4 print size leaving a small space for some written notes.  Added 24 July 2006

These fashion sketches are ideal for school, college and amateur dramatic costume use.  Pupils could remodel the pictures by colouring in, producing costume timeline scenes or foundation guides for fabric collage work.
