Chiné a la branche, also called warp printed silk, and ikat, is as dear to my heart as paisley as far as #georgian #patterns go, but rather harder to source.  I've found some nearly as pretty as this one from the Met though, so watch this space...⠀

I love how over-the-top 1890s fashion got, like this Paquin evening dress with its layers of texture in the bodice, enormous frilled sleeves, and full skirt.  It's a beautifully balanced design too, with interest from every angle.⠀
