Looking back over 2013, I realize that the main thing holding me back from making many of the gorgeous historical gowns I have planned is the fact that I have none of the proper foundation garments for them. In 2014 I plan to change this. I'm calling it the Year of Foundations.
My main goal is to complete one full set of historical undergarments from each of at least two time periods in one year. Should be doable, yes? Luckily for me, A Damsel in This Dress just posted a fantastic overview of period-correct undergarments from Medieval through Edwardian, and a guide to wearing them properly. I would definitely recommend checking it out, especially if you are also interested in making 2014 a Year of Foundations!
