At Shelley Peters' workshop last weekend I had the privilege of trying on one of her antique corsets. This corset dates to about 1912. It is in remarkably good condition, with just a little browning from age.
|You can see the boning stops |
at the hip on the sides.
|The busk gets wider at the bottom, though |
it is not exactly a "spoon."
|This trim looks very similar to the machine|
embroidered cotton trim you can still find today.
