Little thing from today.
Obsolete Items of Clothing Part IV: the Bicycling Suit, c.1895. I spent the past days reading about the bicycle craze of the 1890s, it’s interesting stuff!
Obsolete Items of Clothing Part III: Wool and cotton “bathing suits”. This one dates from c.1900-1910, and something very much like it can be seen here. These would have been worn with thick stockings and shoes, but I couldn’t bring myself to draw a woman in wooly socks on a summer beach.
Obsolete Items of Clothing Part 2: Muffs.
I’ll be drawing some obsolete items of clothing for the next few weeks; it’s a small college project. This week: a 1920s corset.
