Behind the Seams
September 30th, 2013
Yesterday we visited the Musee des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre. There is a super exhibit on undergarments starting around 1660 through the present. The commentary is excellent and Peg took photos of many of them as we went, until we found out that photos were not permitted. There was an area where you could try on garments, I think only for women. Several were doing just that while we watched. I learned how women sat down wearing those huge hoops. They sat on stools and the dress just fit over the whole stool. Piece of cake!
