Starting With Underthings

I intend this blog for instant display of my random findings, but to get it going I'm sharing some more conventional information.

Many of my novels are set in the English Regency -- Jane Austen's time -- and people often think that the high waisted gowns of the time freed women from corsets, but it isn't so. In fact the fashion for extremely high breasts made a strong corset essential for most fashionable women.
This site sells patterns.

There's more here.

More another day!
