Q. I'm doing the play Miss Julie in class and I need images of the fashion, clothing or costumes for my assignment. The play takes place in Sweden during the 1880s. Where do I find sources?


We have two online books that has the images of Freja Illustrerad Skandinavisk Modetidning which comes from the Nordic Museum in Sweden and they range from 1889-1910.  They are the perfect example that will help as well.

Link to record (has ebook link too in case the one below fails):

Matthews, M. (2018). A Victorian Lady’s Guide to Fashion and Beauty. Pen and Sword History.
