Back in the Day
I've always loved to play dress up. Even when I was teaching, I'd have "Hawaiian Day" when we studied Hawaii. "Favorite Author" day when we studied the classics. And "Civil War Day" when we studied the Civil War. Not only would the students come dressed up, I would too. And we'd wear our costumes the entire school day.
Of course, I don't teach anymore. But, I still manage to do my share of dressing up at my Getaway With Dee events each summer. As part of my fascination with dress up clothes, I comb through all kinds of vintage clothing sites. Pinterest has offered a plethora of new places to explore.
Here are some of my favorites from my recent finds:
On the left is a two-piece tan silk shantung dress. The two pieces are a skirt and cuaisse bodice with brown faille trim. It is from the trousseau of Della Miles Bertch, 1887. On the right is the matching coat with hood and matching parasol. I found this on Rhonda Gibson's Pinterest page.
I found this cotton Civil War dress (circa 1865) on Kelly Cochran Davis' Pinterest page. This, too, would be two pieces--a skirt and a bodice (with a bazillion kinds of undergarments underneath). I particularly love the circles and dots along the skirt. The sleeves are super fun also.
Last is this bathing suit ensemble (also from Rhonda Gibson's page). The embroidered red-orange wool serge suit by LY and J Nathan has wool braid trim. It was worn by Emily Tinne in 1910 during her honeymoon in Ireland. Her orange cotton sateen bathing cap has waterproof rubber backing.
My favorite part of the outfit, however, are her linen espadrilles (aka shoes). An orange anchor is embroidered on the linen. They have cotton jute soles and cotton laces.
Do you still play dress up?
