So what happens when you get busy and don’t really update the Real Women’s Clothing directory for about a year? You have bazillions and bazillions of new listings to add! Ouch! I think my arm just fell off!
I’ve cleaned up links that weren’t working (like the Museo del Traje), relinked sites that changed URLs (like the Bowes Museum and what used to be the Museum of Costume in Bath, now the Museum of Fashion) — most of these have been gone so long that they’re highlighted as new, so longtime users of the directory may see some repeats. And I’ve added a veritable fiesta of new links. Yay!
I’d like to sincerely thank everyone who sends me links, or posts links on their own blog/livejournal/etc. Sometimes I file away your emails/posts for months before I’m able to get to them, and sometimes I bookmark the site and forget that it was you who sent it to me, but I’m always sincerely appreciative! Big shout out to Wendy for finding the Powerhouse Museum in Australia (bonus points to those who find the tram ticket dress!), Eva for finding the Gothenburg City Museum, and Bjarne for finding the National Museum of Denmark. And to anyone else who I’ve forgotten who has ever sent me links – thank you!
