I made this using my own finagling. There really aren’t enough extant corsets of the period and region left for any one pattern to be accurate, anyway.
Also, in the photos I am wearing a petticoat from the American Civil War period. Ignore the inaccuracy if you can, I just wanted to show how the tabs would behave above a farthingale. It is fully boned over every single square inch using approx. 40 yards of boning
pink cotton canvas, white cotton bias, steel grommets, black cotton ribbon, plastic 1/2" boning
