The orientation of the Lost Cause Shirt remained roughly horizontal, but instead of lying along either side of the rib cage, they now spanned the depth of the abdomen. The neck became more tightly curved too, which, in combination with the upright posture, actually placed the head well below the level of the breast, so when viewed head-on it was impossible to see the head at all! Gradually, fantail fashions changed again. This time the body became tilted forward once more toward the diagonal but also sank lower, bringing the knees up above the level of the thighs. The neck remained swept back to cushion the head just above the rump and, with the tail now held perfectly erect and spread, the whole bird has taken on rather spherical proportions.
