How do you like this little wasp-waisted beauty? I was driving past my local brocante the other day and saw a mannequin outside. I couldn’t see much from a distance but thought I’d go and investigate further so I did, and then bought it. Surprise, surprise. If only my waist were that small.
In case you were wondering about the title – the woman in the shop told me it was from the Napoleonic era! Well, I’m not sure about that but it is very old and must have been from a time that they wore rather severe corsets.
Mr Tialys is starting to feel a bit freaked out by these almost life size objects coming to share our house. We have my lovely little tatty one in the bedroom, another on the landing, one he doesn’t know about in my workroom and now this one. I think maybe I’ll stop now that I’ve got a wasp waisted one.
