It’s no secret the ladies of Clockwork like pretty dainties. We ooo la la over lace, coo over crisp cotton, pine for pintucks and sigh at silk. But when it comes to the basics we prefer a combination of practical, comfortable and pretty.
This sleeveless camisole is perfect under a corset but pretty enough to be worn as a blouse. It’s generously cut in the waist, but trim at the bottom so it drapes beautifully. The gathered neck ruffle is perfect peeking out of a jacket or suit. And the bottom ruffle adds a finishing flourish. A simple piece that can be dressed up or down, worn buttoned or slightly unbuttoned and all in soft cotton.
Ladies: To extend the life of your corset you should always wear a layer under it. Cotton is ideal. This not only protects your investment from skin oils and perspiration, but protects your skin from bumpy laces and stays.
