The bottom layer.Wear it under your stays to protect the corset from sweat and body oils.Perfume was an essential part of this garment's existence. The laundress washed underclothing in herbs and scents, partly because clothing was not washed very often (and when it was, wood ash, mud, or dung might be used as 'cleansers'), and partly because the wearer did not bathe very often. After 1700, soap and boiling water became the cleaning method of choice, but her underwear was still washed more frequently than she was.This pattern includes 4 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 2 pattern sheets. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a white paper envelope. All sizes Petite X-large are included.
