18th century stripes

One of my favourite things about 18th century fashions are the fabrics, the colours and the prints. There’s a lot of lovely prints in this era, but one of the most common one is a simple stripe print. Of course, when incorporated into a late 18th century dress, stripes become anything but simple. Another good thing about stripes is that its relatively easy to find modern fabrics which can be used for this period! In this post some of my favourite late 18th century fashion plates involving stripes.

Of course, there’s the black/white grey type of stripe. I personally love this print.

Then there’s the revolutionary colour scheme of black, white and red. The colours of the revolution in France.

But, of course, any colour combination is possible. Purple/blue, or lime green/pink, or yellow green, etc.
