Frothy Fabulousness

I’ve been auctioning again….crinolines 001

The auctioneer decided to sell all these beauties as one lot.crinolines 004

How could I possibly say no?

I am spending the day washing up this frothy fabulousness.crinolines 011 crop

My daughter is enthusiastically assisting (she has her eye on some of the green ones to wear over jeans!)crinolines 010

We’ve washed and dried about 30 vintage crinolines so far, and I am estimating we have at least that many more to go…crinolines 014 crop

I went out and bought a garment rack to store them on until I decide what to do with them all.  Some we will keep, some we may make into skirts for a local shop…..  For now they are forming the most colorful cloud of froth while waiting for their turn in the wash!
