Godey’s Fashions Coloring Book

This thirty-page coloring book, a lovely collection that offers a glimpse into the history of what well-dressed American women and youngsters of the Victorian era were wearing, is a must-have for coloring book fans, costume- designers, and cultural historians.




Superbly rendered illustrations, adapted from Godey’s Lady’s Book, a popular nineteenth-century fashion magazine, provide authentic views of evolving Victorian modes of apparel–from lace-edged necklines and elongated bodices to fitted bonnets and extravagant bustles.

Thirty ready-to-color illustrations depicts lavish dresses and gowns of velvet and damask, smart riding outfits trimmed with braid and gilt, an elegant cashmere shawl, and children’s outfits, as well as hair ornaments, footwear, and other accessories.
