So of course, I haven't actually done any sewing in a week. Because I have to sew bustle pads, corsets, and petticoats...and I just feel so "meh" about the prospect. So in an attempt to motivate myself and get my project momentum back, I've been looking at pretty undergarments. Here are a few to motivate you too!
Does anybody else have a particular costuming thing that you always have trouble with? Please share in the comments!
|tiered whitework petticoat, 1870s|
|striped petticoat, late 19th century (via the Met)|
|petticoat c.1875 (via the Met)--interesting ruffle arrangement|
|pink petticoat with lace, 1880 (Met)|
|corset, 1864 (via the V&A)|
|corset, 1890 (V&A)|
|corset c.1880s (V&A)|
|I was looking for tartan drawers, meaning the kind you wear (or did in the 19th century, anyways)...I found this instead!|
