CONSTRUCTED RECOLLECTION – CRINOLINE

CRINOLINE, 2022 by Leslie HossackCrinoline

“This image was inspired by my first party dress. In the 1950s, birthday parties were very exciting, but low key compared to today. Four or five neighbourhood friends would be invited. There were balloons, and games such as musical chairs and pin the tail on the donkey. The food consisted of sandwiches cut in the shape of triangles with the crusts removed, celery sticks and carrot sticks, birthday cake and ice cream. Everyone wore their very best clothes. For me, that meant shinny black patent shoes and bright white ankle socks. But most of all, it meant I got to wear my party dress. It was pink, with a full skirt, puff sleeves and a Peter Pan collar. I was only six years old, but I clearly remember the feel of the soft furry black velvet ribbon that tied around the waist and the prickly scratchy net crinoline that was attached underneath.”
