Historical Threads

Jeune Dame de la Nord-Hollande (No. 31)
We've lived in threads for a very long time!
And fashion always, ALWAYS, repeats itself.
Her sleeves are very much in fashion today, although if you
enter "arm sleeves" in a search engine, then click "images"
you will have to wade through a ton of tattooed appendages
to find the knit/crochet versions.

The photos here are being shared from the Flickr photostream
I double-dog dare you to head on over there and get lost for a couple of hours!
And y'all thought Pinterest was addicting ...

Paris. Tricoteuse. (28)
I got a kick out of this one ... knitting whilst standing.
Of course, with the way my lower back and tailbone have been feeling lately,
standing has been my position of choice lately.
(I fell off a horse a couple of weeks ago ... and that's all I'm going
to say about it!!)

Paris. Maitresse Lingére. (39)
Oooooooooooo ... lace!
I may have been born 200 years late.

Costume de Madrid (No. 66)
Ooooooooooooo ... more lace!

Hope everyone is having a marvelous day!
