Re: Finishing of square necked smocks
- I have looked at that photo, but am still not sure. I *think* that a
front facing is tacked on (a lot of clothes of this era are finished
like this). There is definitely a separate square of embroidery and
I think this is done as a facing, but without actually having
examined the chemise it's hard to tell, that's why I was wondering
if anyone has seen either of them up close. (the other one I refer
to is pictured in QEWU).
