Pinterest Monday 1-14-13

Hello Friends
Today on my Pinterest Monday post I will feature some of the images I have saved as inspiration for jewelry designs. I love vintage and things from yesteryear. Photographs of antique clothing and images from film are a great resource. Here are a few of my favorites so far.  From eras of the 1700 & 1800's


Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara from Gone with the Wind, 1939.  Film designer Walter Plunkett spent months studying historical socites and private collections for costumes pieces from the civil war period.  This is one of the most beloved from the movie

  1. I love looking at old costumes too, Tammie, especially authenticated stuff (love the Met's Costume Institute). As a former seamstress, I am always amazed at the work that was done ALL BY HAND-STITCHING! Love those movie interpretations, too.

  2. See I love the white and green dress from Gone with the Wind. The hats with the bonnets like in Cranford cracks me up. Well, that's all I've got on period attire. Thanks for the eye candy.
