Or was there an empire waisted skirt attached to this piece? I'm sure there are those of you out there who know exactly how this was used and worn.

I'm showing these early shoes with buckles (that aren't of the correct era, but somewhat of the right look) just to give you an idea of what they would have looked like when worn.

Lined in oil cloth bodice, skirt is unlined (though a bit of oilcloth around hemline (just needs a few minor stitches).The condition is Excellent (with just one small old repair - see photo - on one mitt) but at 200 years old...
