Today, just before I left the Patterson House to go home, I decided to open one more box. This box had several outfits on top, but I went straight for the bottom....and look what I found!
And then, of course,
The hoop petticoat comes next!
|Cup size 0, Ribbons for straps. And no elastic, but heavier fabric in the back.|
|A pretty little thing! figuring a couple of inches at the laces, it was made for a 21 or 22" waist.|
It is in very good shape and had certainly been used.
|The corset was made from 2 1/4 " ribbon.|
|The corset cover, in excellent condition.|
|It comes in 2 sections that are hooked together. Some of the twill is in bad shape so will have to conserve it a bit to show enough how it looks when fully opened.|
