    From Egypt to Greece, from Rome to Byzantium, from Middle Ages to Baroque, from Neoclassicsm to the Victorian era, and the fascinating 20th century, which would have been your style?

      I really think I would enjoy the fashion of the ’40s. I love Claire’s wedding dress (to Frank). The clothes seem so streamlined and classic.

        I love the ’40s also. You should check out “Theatre de la Mode”. They are the fashion mannequins created after WW2 by the couture houses to get people out of the war mode. They are ablsolutely lovely. Each house created garments for dolls that were 27″ tall. I am so lucky to live just down the river from their permanent home!

      The 18th century. But I would want to wear men’s clothing.

      Unless I have a house load of servants, my style is whatever the working class is wearing. Upper class fashion was beautiful but hardly practical for daily life. When I work in costume I can’t lace up my own shoes once I am in my corset!

      If in the 18th century I would have loved to be a Highlander man and wore a kilt but clothingwise for women… really I would have loved to live in the 1930s to late 40’s… like the cuts for women the hemline and the hourglass look, the pencilskirts, the hats and gloves. Just made women look so feminine.

      I can’t help but love the Regency period of dress. For the men and women. Very dashing.
