Mixed Clothing Images

Growing collection of public domain mixed clothing drawings from a variety of books and magazines. Most of these drawings are over 100 years old yet some look much like today’s modern clip art. They date back to a time when colored images were hand-painted, rather than printed.

From boots and other footwear to formal dresses and lady’s hats, there’s something from the world of fashion here. They have all been selected by a crafter in hopes that they would work well with your own projects.

Evening Dress in 1881

Evening dress in 1881 featuring a bodice and jacket pattern from a fashion magazine. The idea of sewing something like this makes me absolutely cringe.

Crown Drawing

350 year-old crown drawing. It’s quite small but I think that might make it even more usable in a mixed media or other modern-day art project.

Lady’s Hat Drawing

Vintage black and white drawing of a lady’s hat with a band and decorations.

Pipe Drawing

An advertising image from a tobacconists shop.
