This corset is based on the transitional corsets sold between 1907 and 1911, as the fashionable silhouette moved from the extreme curves of the early Edwardian era to the straighter silhouette of the 1910s. Like most 1900s and 1910s corsets, this corset is made from a single layer of strong fabric. Both views feature dramatic swooping front panel seaming which forms an inverted fan shape, bust and hip gussets, and four garter straps.
The 1770s-90s are a time of experimentation and transition in cutting and patternmaking techniques. In the first 3/4 of the 18th century women’s sleeves are almost always cut so stripes run horizontally across the sleeves. However, in the last quarter of the 18th c both grainlines are used, so stripes can run either way.
