Flashback Friday -- What they wore
I wonder if they could ever relax and kick back. Perhaps when they pulled off their corsets with stays and put on a nightgown for bed they could slump a little.
I ran across this fashion spread whilst sorting through some stuff. It was badly water damaged and has a touch of mildew. I sent it off to Newbie Richardson, a restorer. Perhaps she can use it for reference material as she preserves and reconstructs old garments.
