GEORGIAN

In the Georgian period there were some amazing excesses of costume, with vast hooped skirts, towering wigs and extravagant trimmings. However there are changes as the century progresses. Gentlemen's coats gradually become narrower in the skirts and sleeves up to around 1780-95, when fashions were simplifying with the influence of the French Revolution. Ladies skirts go from dome-shaped to oblong, then draped and finally plainer with a small train. Check the dates given by each doll to see which could be used together. As usual, the servants are suitable for any and all would suit the classic Georgian house or the slightly earlier Queen Anne.
