Photos, details and a pattern for an 1869 American skeleton corset. It has no fabric between the boning channels, just a few horizontal tapes to hold the bone casings together.
Fantastic article; so well researched. What I am wondering is, wouldn't the wearer of this corset suffer from 'bulges' through the gaps? And wouldn't this affect the way clothing lies?
I was also wondering the measurements of this? I'd love to make it but would like to know what size it is first :)2
