Stomacher inspiration for the #1630 bodice. A pretty c. 1610-20 linen stomacher, embroidered in silk and metallic thread. Victoria & Albert Museum, Accesion no. 2009-1899.
Looking forward to working on a pattern for mine, using this beauty and some other sources. Before that it is time to pleat the petticoat, and to spend a quiet weekend away from the internet.
See you all on Monday!
