TIETOJA MINUSTA: The is a one layer cotton coutil corset, sewn with machine using period techniques described in The Fashions Of The Gilded Age by Frances Grimble. The pattern is based on the c. 1873 corset from Corsets and Crinolines by Norah Waugh. The corset is heavily corded with cotton cord, which stiffens the corset wonderfully.
This is a victorian corset which was used to create the perfect hourglasss figure. This is gorgeous but can't imagine wearing it. No wonder victorian women passed out all the time !... They couldn't breath
