Larry:  (See 2May) "If you're interested in Cathy Cat, this is a fun video of Cathy's first time in America. She is a German girl who lives in Japan.  She speaks three languages (I'm jealous} and in this video she speaks English only. It's in two parts and one will follow the other. So if you have a few minutes you might check it out. Lots of cute Lolita dresses." 
 

Another instance of keeping your horse toasty!

Monica came up with a suggestion for a new section: Taking an ad (old or new) and creating 'imitation' poses. 
Match the Petticoat Pose.  Any takers?  LaBee, maybe?

Incredible petti-sleeves on Liz in this
 publicity photo from
Raintree County (1957)

Beautiful Miss Taylor in 1860's crinolines. Features one lovely scene with her getting dressed with her hoop and petticoats!) Poufies will shake their tails in disbelief, but this  Civil War film required more elaborate costumes than "GWTW."  One for Ms. Taylor was 'a gown of mousse line', embroidered with morning glories over blue taffeta, with  a changeable lavender/green taffeta bodice.  Goodness me!   Review by Pammie  (R.I.P)     


For our Floor section, but also might be good
for our Gowns That Look Like Petticoats area
