I recently came upon the book The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior published in 1954. It lists every letter in the alphabet with fashion terms associated with each one. As soon as I read the words, Frills and Flounces, I knew it was going to be the name of my blog!
Frills and Flounces- A very romantic, simple and young way of retaining the fullness of a skirt. In recent years we have made great use of flounces but now the fashion is turning toward slim skirts and slim hips, maybe flounces will be less used. But anyhow, I love them. And for a young girl’s dress there is nothing nicer. ~ Christian Dior
