Just playing a little game with myself, Fashionable Reader. I fancy Primrose is a big fan of super fancy underpinnings. This one is for her!
Here's the first layer:
|Brassiere 1910s The Metropolitan Museum of Art copy|
|Drawers 1900s The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston|
|Garter 1875-1825 The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
|Stocking 1860 Les Arts Décoratifs|
Over that would go the next layer of these items:
|Corset 1900 The Metropolitan Museum of Art copy|
|Corset Cover 1910s Antique Dress|
|Chemisette, Undersleeves, and Handkerchief 1860s The Metropolitan Museum of Art copy|
Over all of this she might wear this:
|Negligee, 1908 From the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague|
|Dressing Gown 1897-1900 The Metropolitan Museum of Art|
