Up until the WW1 the female body was manipulated into various silhouettes by the means of tightly woven cotton fabric, whale bones and tight lacing. It still amazes me how different shaped patternpieces can influence the final outline. Originally worn as an under garment corsets are now so beautiful they need to be on show. I still use the strong cotton coutil to support the steel boning and use luxurious silks, ribbons and beads to embellish.
