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!

    These are very lovely. I like buttoned boots, actually I like all sorts of buttoned things, rows of similar shapes going up and down the garments are visually very nice.
    Peony and her dresses are very pretty too, and I really like how you talk a bit about the history of those clothes and show us the fashion plates.

    Oh wow, linking to the older post and comparing it to this one, just reinforces how much more I like the new style of posting.
    And I’m loving Peony and her dresses.
