Caraco and Petticoat:
Los Angeles Count Museum of Art
We were just having a quick click through our 1770's folder, doing some research on a dress to study at the V&A when we whizzed passed this little beauty.
Dated c.1770's, this light and simple looking Caraco and matching Petticoat took us a little by surprise. LACMA has obviously dressed a mannequin for a photo shoot of this neat little ensemble - but look! they've dressed it with a finely laced (or stringed) CF detail pair of Stays. We've seen one exactly like this at the Edinburgh Collections Centre and have a few other versions in our Stays image file.
