Civil War Fashions - Engravings from 1864 Ladies Friend Magazine - Back Views

More Civil War era fashions from The Ladies Friend magazine. These back views were often fancier than the front!


  1. Isn't it interesting how the collective fashion consciousness was showing boredom with the crinoline skirt, and was shifting their interest to the back view? It would only be a matter of time for the bustle to emerge from that transition in emphasis. I love how fashion morphs along!

  2. I love the phrase "morphs along". :-)
