Vintage Scans of Clothing Pattern Catalog, Free Printable Victorian Fashion Digital Collage Sheets
Free Victorian Catalog Pages - Digital Ephemera for you mixed media art
These amazing antique catalog pages have tons of beautiful vintage black and white illustrations of Victorian clothing and underwear, as well as some real gems of vintage advertising. All of these are completely free to download and print to use in your artwork for sale or personal use. These lovely fashion images are great sizes to use in ATCs and inchies! Found in publications from the late 1800s and early 1900s, these pages are scanned at 600dpi to give you high quality printable images. Aging, discolorations, and pencil marks have been left intact for the best vintage feel.
Please do not redistribute these images in other collage sheets, on CD, etc as I took great pains in finding and scanning them. These sheets are 100% free, but I do invest a lot of time in creating them, and this project is supported through the ads and Amazon links on the page. If you find these freebie collage sheets useful, I'd very much appreciate it if you would share the link on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, your blog, or where ever you like to socialize with other artists online. Thank you!
P.S. Can't see the images? Try turning off your ad-blocking software... it usually can't tell the difference between modern ones and these beautiful antique advertisements.
