1840s
Man's silk waistcoat. Submitted by Jill on the A272
Small waists were a feature of mid 19th century fashions for men as well as women, male corsets were available for those who wanted them, although tailoring could help achieve this look. This fitted waistcoat would have been worn with a long fitted coat and slim fitting trousers.


Late 1840s
Sisters. Submitted by Jill on the A272 by Permission of C Frye
Left sister: A centre parting with ringlets was a popular 1840s hairstyle. This sister's sleeves are set slighty below the natural shoulder line and the flared shape is a precursor to the later "pagoda" sleeve of the 1850s. Here they are worn with "engageantes" - a detachable false undersleeve.


Right sister: A wide off the shoulder neckline is made more modest by the use of a black lace jacket, and the tiered dress gives it more fullness than her sister's. Both dresses would have been worn with several petticoats The gold adornment is an original feature on the photograph.

It is thought the two portraits (this one and the one below) were painted around 1825. As the couple in the portraits look so young maybe they were painted as a wedding present to each other or to commemorate their marriage.
