1886 LADY'S CORSET WAIST - 32" BUST 25" 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 original corset was made to take the place of a corset requiring great warmth. It is made of red flannel and made with whalebones in the seam and light corset steels in the fronts. With the whalebones and steels omitted it makes a well fitting corset cover as well.
