Guess what day it is?
It’s Accessory Thursday!
The whole point of Accessory Thursday is to allow me to show off some of the smaller pieces that make up a paper doll collection.
For a child’s wardrobe in the 1860s, accessories meant shoes and underwear. Now, kids back in this era wore a lot of underwear, but I decided to focus just on a pantaloons and camisoles. Staybands where also very common. Staybands were like a corset, but they weren’t boned the same way. The idea was to keep the spine straight and help with development.
If you feel that you need a stayband, than check out Promenade & Play which features one from the 1870s.
Shoe-wise, she’s got brown leather boots with a bow detail and some black and white button up boots. I think I just like the idea of two-tone boots. I confess I don’t know how popular they actually were back in the day.
As always, I’d love to know what y’all think of the continuing trend of Accessory Thursdays!
