"Godey's Lady's Book"
American Fashions • circa 1850s-1870s

Original 150-plus-year-old hand-colored lithographs (chromolithographs) and engravings (both hand-colored and black and white)
Sheet size: approximately 9.5 x 6 inches

Fashion plates were hand-colored engravings and color lithographs that appeared in women’s magazines. Since clothing could not be obtained ready-made, these plates provided information to dressmakers and home sewers on the latest fashion trends. In the United States many of the engravings and lithographs were copied from plates in French magazines. The two most popular American women’s magazines during the Civil War were Godey’s Lady’s Book and Peterson’s Magazine.
