I've added some new links for those interested in fashion of a couple of centuries ago. I've found some new information i did not know about. There was a corset made with a bustle to handle the style of the 1880's. While this is much better than the cage i have seen it would still be hard to sit on anything. But i do so love the styles; the layers of trims on the bodices and skirts. These links are listed under Fashion Notes.
I was working on the edging for the Sleeve of the last post and had hardly started when i thought of another way to do the edge. The first edge was looking so cute though, I decided to do both edgings.
First Edging -
I have put them together in the file you can find here.
