Ladies' Corset-Cover No. 3393 - 1890

Ladies' Corset-Cover No. 3393

No. 3393. — This corset-cover is illustrated made of white cambric and trimmed with Hamburg edging. The close, smooth adjustment is performed by single bust darts, under-arm and side-back gores and a curving center seam.

The closing is made with buttons and button-holes, and at the neck is a frill of edging. The arms-eyes are trimmed with similar edging. Perforations made in the pattern and shown in the illustrations support a low, round neck and a V-shaped neck.

Costume Options

Cambric, linen, lawn, muslin, or any other material suitable for underclothing will make up well in this way.

The decoration may consist of washable lace, embroidery, crocheted edging, ruffling, feather-stitching, etc., and it may be simply or elaborately disposed, according to personal taste.
