There will be a display of 1880’s dresses from the Costume Museum of Canada at my favorite local house museum. I have much joy in all of this for three reasons. 1) the display will be during Doors Open which I really enjoy. During this event the doors of historic buildings are thrown open and folks are allowed in to see some of our “lovely’s” that might only be open for employees of business’ housed in them. 2) The house museum I mentioned above, where the display will be, had some issues a couple of years back and the possibility of it being closed down and converted into some sort of office space (HORROR) was considered. My hope is that they are going to attempt the museum route once more and Door’s Open is a toe in the water. Fingers crossed! 3) Well, who doesn’t love 1880’s dresses!
A nice little summer dress for a young girl.
