In the Victorian times the clothing was generally made by seamstresses, traders, hatters, milliners, corsetiers, and glovers among other people. While the women sported for long dresses that mainly had two kinds of patterns; the Empire silhouettes which were rather fitting close to the bust and loose below and the Regency silhouettes that involved many layers of clothing underneath ones fancy clothes to give them a more crisp look or feel. The skirts and sleeves were mostly bloomed up and puffy and were sometimes even supported by hoops or crinolines.

The men on the other hand preferred to have simple clothing such as the trousers and long frock coats. Towards the latter half of the 19th century this changed to a more sober kind of dress sense comprising of plain sack suits. At the time, Charles Frederick Worth, was seen as being the' father of haute couture'.

Women wore corsets to make them seem skinner. This became a problem for breathing. Corsets kept the skirts high. Soon after this fashion, still in the Victorian era, the high skirt moved to the back.
Men were not totally strange-looking. They wore straight suits, that is still commonly found, but that was what every-one wore then.

It's amazing how important the clothes we wear are. Consider Zimbabwe - highest inflation in the world right in the middle of the third world. You'd think that would be the last thing on their minds, but you'd be very mistaken - bizsetup.wordpress.com
