Baroque Underbodice

 

  The typical highwaisted underbodice consists of two parts the underbodice itself and the stomacher (previous picture), a triangular part of a garment boned by barked reed which covers lacing of the underbodice. The fastening of the underbodice is made according to a drawing of an extant boned bodice pattern located in Museum of London (ca 1635). The separate flat collar and separate cuffs (see Arnold: Patterns of Fashion 4) both consisting of white batiste and lace are basted to the underbodice. On the pair of bodies are worn two white petticoats of damask, which create necessary volume of the skirt.
