I started wearing petticoats back in the late 50's. My Mom had several 3 -
layer crinolines and lots of taffeta and chiffon cocktail dresses. Being an
only child, when the folks went out I was left to "sit" myself - no
problem!! Meant a lot of femme time.
In the late 60's I had the chance to wear a hoopskirt wedding gown of my aunt's. An experience I'll never forget. Barely able to fit through a doorway to the living room. A long period of growing up and marriages. Then finally a chance to dress on Halloweens. So, with eBay and online stores, I went from a 30 year dry spell to over a dozen petticoats.
Petticoat Pond was my Nirvana when I found it. Not only did it reassure me that I was not alone, but Tessy has collected many of the pictorial treasures that I glimpsed in my lifetime. What is it about crinolines? Why do we
crave them? Tessy, thank you for keeping their style alive. Bless you.
