... by tracing. Bonny Blue designed clever kits of printed designs that you can trace and combine and colour out and, simply, play dress-up on paper with.
It's something I would have totally loved as a child. I still love it, only I'm not so much into 1860s. I mean, I am into them, the way I'm into almost all historical fashions, but I'm not into them enough to really really want this. I'd rather love the Regency kit that's coming next.
But if you are interested in 1860s fashions badly enough, and manage to read this before Saturday June 26th (not much time left, I know), you can even win one of the clever kits in a giveaway.
