  1. 1. Women's Fashion in the Victorian Era<br />By: Hannah Miles and Marnee Kirkpatrick<br />
  2. 2. Dress Lenghth<br />The longer a woman's dress was, was the indication of how old she was. Unlike people today, these ladies wanted to wear longer skirts or dresses.<br />
  3. 3. Pale Skin...Is Sexy?<br />Back in the Victorian Era, to be pale was considered attractive because it meant that you didn't have to work in the fields to make a living. To become more pale, women could avoid fresh air or drink vinegar.<br />
  4. 4. Hair<br />Hair styles for women were typically very long. They hardly ever got their hair cut, unless they had gotten lice.<br />
  5. 5. Cosmetics<br />For a woman to wear make-up, apart from the actresses, was wrong. <br />They had bare faces, but some occasionally wore a small amount of blush. <br />
  6. 6. Clothing<br />*Victorian era fashion had many layers!<br />1866- Princess Dress- cut from one piece with other pieces sewn on to give a woman shape<br />1867 to 1875 - Soft Bustle Silhouette - the behind of a woman was puffed out<br />1878 - Curaisse Bodice - form fitted with a train in the back, trailing from behind<br />
  7. 7. 1883 - Hard Bustle - more flat front, still very large behind<br />
