By now, you have probably noticed that I haven't posted anything in a few days.*  The reason is: I've finished up posting Volume I of Galerie des Modes, and while I have a buffer of Volume II plates, I just want a bit of a rest and a chance to build it up.  I have a few twentieth century posts in the pipeline – advice from the 1900s on waist-making and skirt-draping, translations from Miroir des Modes – that I'll be posting, but I don't plan to start Volume II until Monday, December 3.

* 11/25: Just noticed this morning that the last GdM plate never went up because I had it scheduled for the wrong day.  Oops!
