Iconic Era shirtwaist

From

Larry, working on a Betty Jane picture:

"This one is an old 35mm shot with my old Cannon A1. I was able to get them all scanned because my brother has a great film scanner. Well, he did get to see more of my wife then he was used to seeing
 but that was all right; I did the best I could with it.  Believe it or not, there is a skirt somewhere
 behind all that lace. Her panties were pretty but she wouldn't let me show them back then. That
came a bit later. Her stockings are a genuine 1960s pair that was in the original, un-opened box."

Denise:

"The other day I heard something on the radio that caught my attention, didn't know until then that the Beach Boys, mainly Brian Wilson, promoted a girl's group known as The Honeys!  I've not been able to find that they had any charted hits, but in listening to one of their songs it sure has a Beach Boy's flavor to it and they were background singers on some of their songs.    

"Found this interesting photo of them, which would have been as the golden era of petticoats was winding down, some of the girls continued to wear them."

Roger T. notes that many of their songs exist on YouTube


My!  This party dress is magnificent!

Every time we see a picture of Annette, our heart weeps.
John N. has provided another.
 


Pinup (le)Bee:

"I once bought (what I thought were genuinely advertised) a skirt from DHGate. The  delivered item was  NOTHING like  that in the picture. Completely inferior to that in the picture, which  was hijacked from the Petticoat  Shop of Berlin site. I sent it back and got a refund for what was: blatant, misleading advertising. But then again, the Chinese are notorious for picturing a product which bears NO resemblance at all to what they actually send.

"I DID use this to my advantage at one time. A long skirt was shown with an incredible hem length. What was delivered was pathetically 'un full' (don't know if that's a word!). I got a refund and they didn't  want the item back. So, I did the same operation two more times from different sellers and repeated the scenario. This gave three of the skirts, which  I then stripped down and rebuilt into ONE really full skirt. I looked on this as a kind of revenge for all the misleading advertising the Chinese habitually use.

"Here are shots; one with the skirt over a crinnie; the other over a chiffon petticoat."

Bloom in the junkyard

From Captain Marno



"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.
