Fashion & Sewing Pattern History, Part Three | Inherited Values | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

As you may recall from part two, fashion sewing patterns were still rather complicated in the mid-1800s. However, some, like Ellen Louise Demorest and her husband William Jennings Demorest, began to assist those who were interested in sewing at home –  assisting at a profit, of course.

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star

About My Passes On Girls On Glasses – Silent Porn Star | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

The reason these glasses are so common are that many of them survived for the very same reason of needing to be hidden. Tucked away under the bar, in the booze cabinet, and other places children, in-laws, nosy neighbors, and even spouses were expected not to peer, just saved the life of the glasses. They remained unscathed, hidden in dusty places until the now-adult children discover them as part of the estate. (Of course, the true iconic bachelor, however real or unreal he may be, he may have used the glasses to the point of wearing the decals off them… If we can believe the legends of “the bachelor life”.
