Here is my first question to both of us (you, the reader, and myself!): what is this blog all about?
Clothes. Specifically, historic clothes–clothes that were worn in the past. I am most passionate about clothes in Europe and America from about 1800-1940, but really I just love clothes. Underclothes, outer clothes, outerwear, accessories, shoes… Clothes. The articles we put on our bodies to cover up and adorn ourselves.
I know there are those of you who share my love of clothes–studying clothes, conserving clothes, designing clothes, making clothes, collecting clothes, or maybe just wearing clothes! I want to find you and share my thoughts with you. I want to hear your thoughts. I want us to encourage each other in our passions (and probably bursting closets!).
I want to explore what we wore and how those articles were made, how and why we wore the clothes we did, and maybe even what we might wear in the future.
So then, why are you passionate about clothes?
