1863 Corset Belt 20" Waist
Ageless Patterns are reproductions from actual 1800's patterns. 5/8" seam allowances and grain lines have been added. These patterns were sized for the original time period so it is strongly recommended that one make a muslin mock-up to adjust to today's figure (specifically the waist) ...the ease and fit of the by gone days are not what we use for today's fashions!
This pattern is one of the most convenient among the variety of corset belts. It sustains the size perfectly, without the stiffness that is an unavoidable consequence of the discomfort imposed by some corsets. It is closed in front with a busk and laced in the back. Original french instructions and english translations included.
