Mr Punch's Designs After Nature

Well, definitley a more literal interpretation of taking nature into fashion....... 
Sambourne really did seem to enjoy taking the mick out of fashion. There are loads of illustrations with strange bird hats, one scary spider hat, bugs, plants, extreme fashion trends and all to poke 
fun at the bizarre things the fashionable crowd of Victorian England might have thrown at society.

Which ones would you prefer to wear? Now, although not for the faint of heart, might I suggest the following Bug Dresses?
