Betsy-Tacy fashion

When I first read the Betsy-Tacy books, I started building a collection of early-20th-century fashion links. I had great intentions of building an epic fashion post.

Instead, enjoy this collection of links. And be glad that you're not expected to wear a hobble skirt (although I wouldn't complain so much about the pompadour).

This is great! It's so fun to see what fashions were like during a different era.

If you are ever interested in knowing more about the lifestyle of the girls of Betsy-Tacy you should visit Mankato. We are proud to be the home of Maud Hart Lovelace and encourage you to come and visit the Betsy and Tacy homes which were restored by the Betsy-Tacy Society.

We also recommend the to great guide books by Julie Schrader. There are so many places to see in Mankato that were mentioned in the books.
- Discover Deep Valley: A Guide to Maud Hart Lovelace's Mankato
- Maud Hart Lovelace's Deep Valley: A Guidebook of Mankato Places in the Betsy-Tacy Books

Please contact us if you are ever in the Mankato area. Have a great day!

As a former Minnesotan, I'm a little ashamed to admit that I don't think I've ever set foot in Mankato -- which is something I'll have to correct on a future visit!
