    If you've been wondering how to use old doilies .....
    Then you might want to check this one out for something unique!!

    http://www.dufferinmuseum.com/current/index.html
    Scroll down to "Not Your Grandma’s Corset"
    and click for a larger view

    And if you want to see how this ties with history, take a look at the real 1890 version that was the inspiration ...
    http://www.dufferinmuseum.com/current/index.html

    And while there, take a look around at the rest of the show for some inspiration. It's in an interesting setting, as the Museum is housed within a new-1994 barn structure, typical of Southern Ontario's many century barns, still in use today.

    No, I haven't been, but do plan on going as part of my summer holiday plans of the Yours to Discover Shop Hop.

    I see the problem ... it's one of those sites that does not give links to each page ... try this link instead

    Thanks, I was interested because I pick up doilies here and there at thrift shops and garage sales.

    Wow. Serendipity ! I was just looking for something to do with all the doilys I have collected that are doing their own collection of dust.

    LOL . I should have looked at the link first. Not exactly what i had in mind. Oh my!!! It is pretty though

    I was able to find both pictures with your added link. That 1890's one is amazing! I couldn't imagine having to wear something like that all day, every day! Yuck!

    Thanks for sharing....that corset was so cute!! I have stacks of doilies (I make them when I'm not quilting) and enjoy seeing what people create with them.
