Creative Haven Victorian Gowns Coloring Book (Creative Haven Coloring Books) (Paperback)
Inspired by the elegant dresses showcased in Godey's Lady's Book, Harper's Bazaar, Ladies' Home Journal, and other Victorian-era magazines, these 31 ready-to-color illustrations depict the well-dressed woman of the late 1800s. Lace-edged necklines, ruffled bodices, full skirts, extravagant bustles, and more period styles will inspire fashionistas and adult colorists alike. Pages are perforated and printed on one side only for easy removal and display. Specially designed for experienced colorists, Victorian Gowns and other Creative Haven(R) adult coloring books offer an escape to a world of inspiration and artistic fulfillment. Each title is also an effective and fun-filled way to relax and reduce stress.
