oh! I love it! "Yes Madamme, there are hundreds of seamstresses that made it possible for you to look so elegant!" Say I, another seamstress...
This is one of my favorites too, but I've never had the full citation. Thanks for posting it!
That is gorgeous, nice sized garderobe.
Hi I love your site, is very elegant, and the picture that you post today about the sempstress is incredible, in those days they really work to do one dress, imagine how many hours they work only for one dress.....:)
Nice to see ladies at work. I remember in Marriage of Figaro, Marceline's big speech on women's rights includes the complaint that even jobs to which women are "naturally suited" such as sewing and cooking, seem to be taken by men.
