1890  Girl's corset made of unbleached cream wool. Made in two halves joined at the centre back and at the front with mother-of-pearl buttons attached to very long cotton threads. It reaches from the shoulder where there are adjustable woollen shoulder straps to the hip. It is boned at the centre front and back, but the bands of stiffening  is achieved with inserted cords and tapes. It is only slightly shaped at the hip and waist but there are narrow pleated gussets for the breasts

Collection of Carolann Schmitt. Cotton waved braid trimming on an original chemise in my collection. The smaller size braid is narrower than modern "baby" rick-rack; the larger braid is narrower than modern "medium" or "regular" rick-rack. The button is threadwork over a metal ring. The chemise is beautifully hand-sewn with run-and-fell seams. The fabric is a coarsely-woven linen. Beautiful needlework; rather 'common' fabric. Country of origin: Germany.
