Chapter 13 Crinoline Period


Published on

I'm glad so many are enjoying these notes. They came from my Historic Costume class I took in college and I still love them years later. I hate that some of the slides are all jumbled up looking. It is a interactive slide show and when it uploaded, it did that. If anybody wants the original file, I will be glad to email it. Just let me know.
