18C Women Across the Globe

1792 Unmarried woman of HIndeloopen. Plate II of Letters over the united Netherlands by J. Grabner, a lieutenant in the service of the republic. 1792

Across the 18C globe, dress varied widely. In the early 1700s, British & British American colonial women dressed similarly, but they could get an idea how women in far places also might dress from costume drawings, which were becoming more popular & more widely available.
