Ballet Inspiration - wonderful costume details

Beautiful inspiration - costumes from the past

I am still in search of details for the costumes for The Wizard of Oz production and I came across these delightful illustrations and costumes for ballet today.

Love, love, love them all - I really think I am living in the wrong century. I often have dreams and I am wearing similar style clothes. I would live in the yellow dress now - if I was a little younger and thinner, ha ha.......

Fabulous details, fantastic layers and trimmings

Isn't she beautiful and what a wonderful organza dress,

Look at these tiny little waistlines

It makes me wonder - what ever happened to my waist ?

I think I may have lost it back in the nineties when my children were born.
