Your photo are all beautiful....and so interesting....thank you Christine!
Interesting photos and history of women's wardrobe. Yup, that's a very thin person with a tiny waist. For sure, I won't fit in it...lol.
Christine, I love your shot of the flowers. My how fashions change, for the most part not as much fabric is used today. Once again I'm enjoying your vacation. Thanks for sharing and I hope that you will return.
Hi Christine.Beautifully those old clothes.Beautiful and elegant.Beautiful also the interior photos.Groettie from Patricia.
Beautiful images Christine. The clothes look very heavy and when it was hot, people must have been very uncomfortable.
Nice exhibition of women's clothing in the old days. We wore bloomers for our exercises in our school days. Very comfortable. Have a great day!
Hello, I love the pretty flowers and photos. I am glad woman's clothes have changed over the years. The clothing is pretty but I would not want to wear them. Have a happy day and week ahead!
fun to explore an area like this. We have Living history Farm near that has four eras of farms and lifestyles.
Small waists - low carb diet? Pretty to look at but in this hot summer, whew.
Beautiful photos !!Greetings
The last time my waist was that small was when I was 8 years old. Can you imagine those Olympic swimmers navigating their laps in that swimming costume?
Oh but what a beautiful dress that is. I guess back then wearing those awful corsets really pulled your waist in. Hard to breathe though. No wonder women were always fainting back then. : )The first photo is breathtaking.
I read a historical fiction about how they got women's waist that thin... alot of women were ill and died because of it...so I'll enjoy my waist ...LOL!! Love those bathing suits... I would love one :)!!
great clothes but I prefer modern ones
Hello again!:) Those are lovely shots of the beautiful flowers and grounds Christine. I love the polka dot dress, and all of these garments must have been very stylish back in those days. I also like the riding and motoring gear, but not the swimwear outfits. I sometimes wish that dresses would come back into fashion, they are much more feminine, because when I'm out and about as a rule I only see jeans or trousers being worn by women these days.
oh i loved all the outfits, especially the one for out motoring around! people were so much more elegant back then, and yes, teency waists!!
The clothes were so elegant!
The old clothes look so stiff and formal.Today we sometimes,no,often have too much skin showing.That certainly wasn't a problem back then.
Oh my, the clothes are so different to today's!Those flowers are so beautiful. Your photo looks like a postcard.
My grandmother's waist wasn't that tiny, but I remember her wearing a corset even as an older woman. - Margy
Enjoyed seeing the old outfits. That first dress is lovely. I was just at a historic home today wondering at the small waists on the outfits! Neat to see the old bicycle in the photo of the bloomers outfit as well. A lot of things have changed.
Loved seeing all the old clothes.
Dress beautiful, but if You want to dress up, you should have a broken ribs ;)
Love those colourful flowers and the shade cast by the tree. So relaxing! - Tasha
What a great post Christine and so enjoyable seeing all the costumes. I think the wearers with those skinny wastes probably had very tight corsets :) Also loved the beautifully composed photos, the flowers drew me to them of course :)))

How did I not know this was a day trip away? Looks like a place I would love! Oh-so pretty clothes, but that tiny waist would never fit! (Love the swimsuits...covers up what I need to hide). Unless I missed it, you'll have to share why you traveled so far from home...I'm off to re-read some of your older posts.
