#underpinnings. The theme of the day for @redthreaded costume challenge. My 18th century stays are patterned off of an original pair I own. They are 100% sewn by hand. Not a stitch on a machine. Made of two layers of linen and covered in a very modern silk. Boned with cane since I can't use ????. Bound in leather I dyed to match. The chemise is also completely sewn my hand. The garters are 1920s based just cause I like to mix it up ???? by @phillipvn #rococo
