It is until the late 1850s, the dye colors became available and soon fashion followed suit. Bright blues, vivid purples and other bold colors were used on silk fabrics that picked up the power of the colors. The bright dyes were not used as much on cotton, linen and muslin, as they often looked too brash and harsh. They are always applied into the silk fabric.
For centuries, satin fabric has been used in all kinds of clothes. During the victorian period, it was also a prevailing fabric in women’s dresses. Tailors loved to use it for its luxurious feel and look.
Cotton is another fabric that used in the victorian clothes. It was seen in normal persons’ dresses or the wealthy ones’ Undergarments. It had a more comfortable feel than a gorgeous and attractive look.
Fabrics are one important aspect in victorian clothes. Using the right fabrics will make victorian style clothing look much more realistic than the other kinds.
