  1. Oh *swoon*! It doesn't matter how many times I see these garments, they still make me absolutely giddy with costuming wonderful-ness!

    I agree with you on the 2nd stays - those colours! They are equal-par with the first stays for me though. I'm such a sucker for gold and yellow! And that flossing across the front! Joy! What is the proper 18th century term for the flossing though?
