channeling my inner norah waugh


Can any of you guess what this is?


I'm sure it won't take many guesses. It's part of a project I'm working on at the Kent State University Museum. I'll give you more details soon!

  1. A corded bodice? As in, pre-corset-steels hemp cording?

    1. You are so kind! I feel undeserving since I've been posting so sporadically lately. Tell you what, once I get back into the swing of things then I will gratefully accept.

    1. I miss it too! I've just wrapped up my course work and thesis project, which means I can start to focus on this project again!

  6. Great, hurry back, it's been rather dull without your frilly photos of corsets and the like (still thinking of the bow on the front of that black 1880s corset from Poland) :)
