“…Lady’s Undress of Bum-be-seen”

The Fashions of the Day - or Time Past and Time Present: The Year (1740) a Lady's Full Dress of Bombazeen - The Year (1808) Lady's Undress of Bum-be-seen (Print, c. 1808 at the Met)

Today’s amusing thought. I came across this while looking for trim ideas for my regency gown. The title of the print is just wonderfully eloquent and well worded. I hope you also get a laugh!

Also, just a reminder that TODAY is the first day of the pre-order period for the Edwardian shoe ‘Astoria’ from American Duchess!
