Corset to combine with models from the early century to 1785. It is composed of four parts, garnished by tails and laced at the centre back. The model should be made with two identical layers, assembled so that the seam allowances are inside and stitched to make a sheath as wide as the bone at every seam line. Other sheathes for additional bones should be stitched following the lines in the pattern. The areas without bones should be densely stitched so that the two layers adhere perfectly (often a padding layer is introduced between the two corset layers). When the assembly is finished the corset can contain the V-shaped stomacher in front, forming part of the costume in view.
