Girl's CorsetUnknown American, American
Girl's corset made of two layers of sturdy white cotton drill and plain cotton with a center back laced closure. The corset has wide shoulder straps and center front casing for a busk. The lacing holes are bound with bone eyelets on both sides of the fabric. Because there is no pattern shaping for the breasts this corset was made for a pre-adolescent girl.
