Very interesting post again. I'm designing costumes for operas at the moment - the high quality pictures here are a great help. And the text are just a very insightful read. Thanks for putting those up.

Thank you so much for your kind words about our blog. It's great to hear that the pics are helpful to your design research...that's one of the reasons we started this blog!

Looking at the bateau neck it is very possible as well that this dress was made for a young lady as a day dress. It was very common to see girls between the ages of 14 and 17 wearing bodices of that style over corsets, hoops, and long skirts. Which would also lend itself to the pagodas being separate from the jockeys... They could have been detachable for different seasons...
