1898 LACE TRIMMED SUMMER CORSET - 24" 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 white linen cambric, with white silk stitching to hold the whalebones and steels, and with a deep trimming of ribbon-threaded lace insertion and edging around the top of the corset.
