Yes, regency-era ladies did wear undergarments! This ensemble starts with a completely hand stitched, short-sleeved shift with low neckline controlled by a casing. Look closely to see cross-stitiched initials in the center front. One option for keeping one's figure under control were 'short stays', with a high waist and bust gussets. Overall is worn a soft linen dressing gown with scalloped ruffles and a double collar. Old-fashioned brocade mules are her footwear.

Lady Dunmore's ball gown | This is the ball gown we created for the program "Lady Dunmore Prepares for the Ball." This gown was used as a prop illustrating what Lady Dunmore would wear to the upcoming ball. Using 18th-century Mantuamaking techniques we cut the fabric over stays and hoops and fit it around the customer. We worked over a 2 week period and it took 125 hours to complete. Like all the sewing we do in the shop this gown was entirely stitched by hand.
