petticoat junction

I thrifted a petticoat this weekend...it was a silly & frivolous purchase but it seemed an appropriate way to celebrate turning 41, and besides I thought it might be fun to photograph:



the dog seemed to lack my enthusiasm:

Oh my gosh that dog photo is a RIOT! There's nothin' funnier than dressing up our doggies :) Love love the petticoat.

I just wore a petticoat in that exact shade of blue to work on Friday (with leggings underneath). One of the kids at my son's preschool came up to me and said, "Look mama, a ballerina!"

Sigh. I've always wanted one, even if just to hang up on the wall with a pretty hanger.

A petticoat tip: when washing, add starch to the last rinse and pin to the clothesline in a circle shape until dry.

Happy Birthday Gina!

Hi, I love your blog! I am new to embroidery, and your blog really motivates me! I have one question though, I can't see the dog picture- I can only see the picture of the petticoat (CUTE, by the way!) My screen only shows "the dog seemed to lack my enthusiasm:" with no pic- any ideas?
Thanks for the super blog! Robbin

Well, happy birthday and welcome to the wonderful world of 41! I like the petticoat - I think a girl can put on a petticoat any old time and enjoy it!

Well congratulations on your wonderful purchase. I just bought my first vintage petticoat and I am 61. I also felt like it was a frivolous purchase but couldn't resist as I have always wanted one and this one was luscious! I will use it for Argentine tango dancing.
