Saturday is always Scatterday. I actually look forward to doing these posts, since I get to share so many different things all in one go. My feverish brain gets all clogged up with these things, and once a week I need to let some of it out to play to make room for more wonders and surprises to come.
One of the curious things about the style of the mid 17th century was that though there was a general loosening up of the imagery of Attire, and a freer feeling overall , the low, wildly retrograde placement of sleeves for women was a strangely constrictive thing. Its as though the age was only giving lip service to increased freedom of dress for women. This sleeve style would make reaching over one's head a near impossibility. Still, in all, its a beautiful thing to look at as a composition of shape and line.
Have a grand Weekend, All!
