Enough with the hoop skirts, already!

Another gem from Maeve's Unmentionables, which I have fugged before.  Oh joy, it's a bell sleeved chemise.  Take note: there was no such thing as a bell sleeved chemise!  Note also that chemises were undergarments, they were white, they were not made of satin, and no one would have paraded around wearing one with nothing but a waist cincher (modern!) to cover them.  And the cloak is crushed velvet.  And oh heavens, it's a HOOP SKIRT.

Y'know what I love about the middle ages?  No corsets.  No infrastructure.  No fucking hoop skirts.  Way to fuck up the natural fit that made them so attractive.
