"A picture from Casa Vogue of April 2004. It looks like the picture dates back a while. Charming, I thought."

More nostalgic  pettis




Abbey Rhodes:

"Sometime, somewhere, I acquired a supplement to Honey magazine which was published in the UK. This dates to about 1958/59, and the pictures remind us vividly why petticoats exist. Here are two of the best examples - I love them all, including the sheath dresses from the era, many of which also feature in this supplement."

"Here is a picture of a Cathy Hardwick dress from 1987. Unfortunately, she went bankrupt that year. The dress is nice though."

Shelley sends this nice advertisement from the November, 1954 issue of Charm (Magazine)







This magazine page dwells on the shoes (which are interesting), but our eyes are on the great dress - heavy enough to crush the pettis upon the leg, hence 'crowded'.
