The alphabet letter assigned to us this time is L
My word is LORGNETTE
I knew of these glasses but I did not know what they were called. I do now.
The image is from a book titled Butterick's 1892 Metropolitan Fashions.
(This book has a copyright date of 1994. It is documenting patterns from 1892 with style description, pattern number, yardage required, some notions suggested and the pattern prices ranging from 10cents to 40cents.)
I couldn't believe my luck in finding this single fashion image with the lorgnette glasses. She is photocopied to tracing paper, colored with a distress marker and colored pencils and spray glued to the dictionary page.
For the previous challenge I had done the word LOOK. Here is the open book page spread.
Had I chosen these words in opposite challenges, I might have illustrated a man looking at the woman instead of daydreaming out the window. She obviously isn't interested in him though! LoL
