1886 SPOONBILL CORSET - 27" 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 of stout gray twill and was stitched with red silk. The upper edge was trimmed with a narrow strip of red silk embroidery as well.
