Undergarments for the 19th Century Lady

Luxurious fabrics. Stylish necklines and skirts with elegant swish and sway. The extravagant, Victorian ball gowns of the 1800’s.

Ever wonder how those Victorian ladies achieved their extraordinary silhouettes?

Layers upon layers of uncomfortable undergarments. Bestselling historical romance author Deeanne Gist commissioned professional seamstress Kelly Cochran to make Deeanne a ball gown she could wear to author events. Kelly provided Dee with an informational video which gave her a peek under the skirts of a proper Victorian lady’s ball gown.

Many thanks to you, Deeanne, for sharing this video with us.
