Sheryl:

"Found this gem while looking for the dance scenes from the Mrs. Santa Claus movie.
It's a bit rough but beautiful skirt and petticoats display in attempting to duplicate a portion of one of the musical numbers from the feature."

Here is a nice perspective on Elizabeth Taylor's

 famous gown she wore in the 1951 film

What this little frock lacks in pettis is

perkiness!

(La)Bee has always been one of The Pond's more flamboyant, but feminine Pinups. She certainly doesn't disappoint with her latest four, at the bottom of this page. 

Wish we had her crinoline budget!

Parasols

 

Talented Crinolyn:

"Great Find by Jennifer, that ball gown petticoat on the 11th. The girl in the video is very patient!

By the way, I resumed posting on crinolyn.com on May 20th and have five new pages of gowns,

a few of which, Gown 5143, Gown 5144 and Gown 5148 would be worthy of the petticoat in the video."

"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.
Tessy 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 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).  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.
