Mending Dress


Today's picture was taken in 1904. It shows a woman mending the lace on her dress. The picture is obviously a studio posed shot, but nonetheless, it shows clothing styles of the day.

  1. Perhaps a slightly racy shot for the time period, when a glimpse of stocking was something shocking?

  2. That's a nice shot -- I like that it shows her biting the thread. I also wonder if the set-up was an excuse to show some leg.

  3. I'm with the previous commenters... wondering if this was supposed to be a bit of a naughty shot, what with all that leg and all!

    I am loving these domestic pictures very much. Thank you for sharing them☺

    It's hard to tell but it sort of lookis like she's mimicking a pos on the cover.
