Late bustle underwear

The combination underwear is made of thin cotton. The seams are machine sewn and hand finished with flat felled seams. It's trimmed with cotton lace and silk ribbon, also hand applied. The corset is almost unaltered version on the late 1880's corset pattern in Corsets and Crinolines by Norah Waugh. It's made of black cotton coutil. I added some cotton cording in the bust area like in the original, trimmed it with lace over silk ribbon and added flossing. It's boned only with spiral steel. The bustle is made after a Laughing Moon pattern. It's made of striped cotton and boned with steel wire. The petticoat is made of regular cotton, stiffened with horizontal tucks.
