Just finished these tonight (and I'm posting now! That's got to be some kind of record) - I needed new stays to wear with my as-yet-unfinished chemise gown for an event this Saturday. Well, "needed." More like "wanted." You see, chemise gowns are made of thin fabric, and you can see a bit of the color of the stays through them. And I wanted to strictly keep to a blue-and-white color scheme - and my current pair of 1780s stays are mint green. Dear me, that will never do!

The spotted sari 1810 dress got another outing tonight - I went to a concert at an historic house in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia tonight with some family - so I took some pictures! Well, my mum did. (Which is good, because I realized I never actually posted about this dress on here! Oopsie. Cliff-notes version: Basic drop-front dress, made from a silk sari, worn over corded short stays!)
