If you love vintage fashion, but don’t really want to color in all the details seen on many clothing styles typical of the Victorian, Edwardian and later eras, this is the adult coloring book for you!
Every one of the 48 illustrations in this book was especially chosen from of our collection of thousands of antique fashion illustrations. Our goal was to find simpler drawings with dark outlines, so you can get the flavor of vintage clothing styles without worrying about tiny patterns and other elaborate design elements.
Inside, you will find four dozen coloring pages with simplified examples of outfits popular from the late 1890s to the early 1920s — dresses, skirts, blouses, suits, coats — and including hats, parasols, shawls and other trend-setting attire. All of these authentic styles are presented chronologically, from the year 1899 through 1922.
Here’s your chance to give these simple vintage fashions the color and the verve they have been missing for a century. And hopefully, you will have as much fun exploring these classic styles as we did rediscovering them!
Note: In keeping with the original designs, the pictures are often very intricate, and there are large areas of shading on certain pages. We chose not to over-simplify the artwork because of the tremendous amount of detail (and personality) that would be lost in the process. Please see below for thumbnails of the images.
