Crinoline Fashions at NMSU

Postby MaryGode » Sat Sep 17, 2011 4:13 pm

A neat PDF on Crinoline from a theatre class at New Mexico State University.

Extant gowns, photographs, and toward the end, some period jewelry. Brief discussion of menswear too!

I really wish the author had bothered to attribute most of the images.

True. You'd think an academic would do that as a matter of course.

Yup. And there are a bunch of things in there that look like stills from old movies, rather than original photographs. It's pretty frustrating, especially since period movies aren't often the most accurate.

Anyone notice that they used the drawing of TV440 on the page about pagoda sleeves?
