A dig through the fabric collection has also yielded all of the fabric necessary for making the two pairs of stays (corsets) mentioned in a previous entry. I have not abandoned the quilted petticoat and bedgown, those projects are in the works as well, and once completed they will received their own post.
The important thing to remember is that neither one chemise nor one style of corset will suffice for all kinds of outfits. The type of chemise worn beneathe a court gown is not the same as what would be worn beneathe a polonaise, and for corsets this is particularly true as the desired shape changed according to function and style. One of the two corsets being made will go under Olympe's traveling outfit, and the other under a l'anglais.
