Sheila (1870s Bodice & Skirt)
The second model to come out was Sheila. She came out wearing a Victorian nightgown which she removed, causing some in the audience to gasp until they realized she had a leotard on underneath. (Remember, the audience was all women, with a fairly high percentage of little old ladies in attendance.) We then proceeded to dress her in all the layers required to get to the point of how she looks in the photo. In the order they went on: drawers, socks, shoes, chemise, corset, corset cover, bustle, petticoat #1, petticoat #2, skirt, bodice, hat, gloves, lace scarf, parasol.
