Here I am, looking like one of those dollies that hides a roll of toilet roll paper underneath. Apologies if this doesn't bring up the image of a crocheted dolly on the top of the toilet tank!
Gorgeous husband took this photo of me in a hoop skirt and corset when we visited the Costume Museum in Bath. Little did I realize that just a few years later I would be wearing one of these swinging bell type garments with a blue Victorian dress over top of it. It really does have a lovely swinging rhythm as you walk.
The Costume Museum had various outfits for the public to try on to get "a feel of yesteryear", so to speak. Naturally, I popped it on over top my sweater, for a truly fetching look.
We spent the rest of the day, after leaving the Museum, exploring various interesting boutiques, workshops, antique shops and funky junk stores. It was a smashing day.
