Happy Memorial Day

Just makes you want to go jump in the pool, doesn’t it?  Heck, with shoes, stockings, drawers, a chemise, a corset, two layers of wool, and a hat on, I wanted to jump in the pool after just modeling it for a few minutes.

If you’d like to see this 1890s bathing costume (made by the lovely and talented Rachel) in person along with many other outfits documenting the fashions of the 1860s through the 1890s, mark your calendars for the Littleton Museum’s fashion show at 7pm on Saturday, July 10th.
