Research: various costuming/historical fashion sites, "How To Undress A Victorian Lady" article, various historical fiction forums.
Okay so I have my two characters in the throes of passion (or at least some serious foreplay). How do I go about getting the (upper-class, fully dressed) lady out of her dress? Are there laces? Buttons? How many layers? I'm seeing lots and lots of information on how to build/make a dress, but not so much on how to wear it/take it off.
