I used the random number generator at random.org which yeilded...Angela!
Angela, please shoot me an email at hyalineblue079 at yahoo dot com (that's zero seven nine) and we'll talk specifics.
In addition, just for fun, some pics of eighteenth-century lovelies from the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. These are all listed by the museum as "corset" though we know that term isn't quite accurate. These are all either stays, jumps, bodices, or an elusive something else...and sifting through what constitutes each is my current research project! It's been anathema in recent years to suggest that sleeveless garments may have been worn as outerwear, but I'm uncovering some evidence to the contrary, especially in France and elsewhere on the continent. Even the reenactor-despised term "bodice" is showing up (in the eighteenth-century dictionary, no less, so rather undeniable evidence), making me wonder if we have our research lacing as tight as it could be...
But back to the fun stuff:
A garment that, from its front closure, I have a sneaking suspicion may be intended to be worn as an outer garment. Listed as European provenance, it has a Continental look to me--French or German, perhaps?
