Pattern

The pattern for the reproduction was draped on a standard size 4 dress form with padded bust over which was placed a reproduction of a corset dated to 1906.  The dress form measured 38” at the bust, 27” at the waist, and 36” at the hip. The pattern is on standard pattern paper.  Each square equals 1".

Figure 1 contains the two pieces of the exterior bodice, front and back, with lace placement indicated.  There is no seam allowance on these pattern pieces.
