Corsets and Crinolines - unique vintage clothing

Corset Cover

Corset Cover
C.1910-1913. A lovely white cotton corset cover to wear with your corset.
Decorated with oodles of Broderie Anglaise, and has slots on the upper bust to add your own baby ribbon (sexy red perhaps?). A remnant of the original ribbon remains. It fastens at the front with linen covered buttons and a drawstring at the waist. Handmade lace decorates each cuff of the puffed sleeve.
The size is wearable. The shoulders measure approx. 16", bust a little over 42" but this was meant to be pouched so a bust of 38"-41" would be ideal. The waist measures 28" but it can be made MUCH smalller with the drawstring. Length is 17" and this would have been worn with a straight 1910's corset.
