corselette 1860

This was also hand-stitched by a great seamstress from the mid-1800s. Four bones. Closes in the front with tiny hooks/eyes and then there are two original tassels finishing off the piece. Lovely! You have to imagine this piece worn over a very blousy blouse with huge balloon sleeves and wide circular skirt.
