John N.  points to this video of Connie Stevens singing with Edd "Kookie, Lend Me Your Comb"  Burns. 
Those old enough will remember him as the private eye sidekick on the popular Era TV
 show, 'Seventy-Seven Sunset Strip." Connie's dress is a delight!

So perfect we suspect this is digital

Provided by Kristi

"Input from Elizabeth Ann H.: I'm in complete agreement that this image is digital.  I find it difficult to envision a normal person standing with legs apparently straight and the torso turned at that angle, seemingly back away from where the hips would have to be.  But it's a beautiful dress, and that's the point!"

Crinolyn has put this film clip together from the 1956 film, Rock,Rock,Rock

(Petticoats under dancing skirts, rock 'n roll style!) Probably the best teenage dance scenes EVER to be placed on film. This is the best example of 50's teenage innocence with petticoats which go flying during the great dance numbers!! NOT to be missed. Plenty of low angle shots of the girls' petticoats during the musical numbers.

More Brigitte Bardot
pictures to add to our collection

From John N.   


Sonia found a nice collection from a Paris museum website.
"A 19th century fashion prints series from a French artist that'd escaped my knowledge: Charles Pilatte :
 
"I always liked 19th C. fashion prints because they very often depict gorgeous fashion, especially from the 1850s-60s. And lots of these are amazing... So when I got on those museum pages, I was (again) confronted to the difficulties of downloading any of it... In this very case, what's the big idea to prevent the downloading of stuff that's way past copyright limits ??? Anyways after a few attempts, I found a work around and so here they are, all of them reunited to my Rosebud Sonia Flickr pages." Note how some of them are way over the top ! ^__^"

"How many clouds of scented lace kiss each other under your skirt?"  
                                                                             
C. Govoni (1884-1965)

 
WHEN I SEE...
A fetching lass, enveloped in tulle,
declaring, defining the beauty of Man(kind)
Slim of waist, contours of mystery.
Dark tresses which defy description,
a mantel of the soul.
She leads on, unaware of her uniqueness--
Classic, haunting,
Deep auras of eyes
Deep vibrations from the heart
Deep color of the gentleness of her inner self.
I see jealousy
I see my yearning to take her place
I see, also, my utter, deadening sadness.
Tes Staylace -- July 12, 1992
Update Page Policies
Generally, updates are linked to the appropriate area so you do not have to search for it.  We keep updates for as long as six months,
after which we merge the individual entries into the appropriate areas of the site.  Very rarely is anything discarded.
Pettipond  ALWAYS attributes the source of pictures when possible.  Image contributions should include the source, when possible, so at least the site from which it is taken can posted with it. It makes no sense, and is unfair, to have the same image on the Internet more than once, especially if the site originally posting it doe not at least get the benefit of a link. If an image is not attributed, and later is found to be in violation of copyright laws, it will be removed.
The Pond is FIRSTLY a petticoat/bouffant/crinoline site, and SECONDLY a TG site.  Image contributions are always welcome and appreciated, but our policy is to not post TG images (with the exception of Poufbunny Parlor Pinups and the occasional VERY passable CDer (in our Flash Pinup section).  Please do not be offended - there are many TG sites on the Internet, but only ONE Pond, and we want also to be inviting to GGs and non-TG males who merely appreciate females in petticoats!
Pettipond Reflections response additions will NOT be listed in this area.
