This corset I used Laughing Moon pattern from 1840's to 1890's.  This corset has six pieces and bust gores in the front.  I used  3 layers, an outside made in with silk, Cotton Coutil for its structure and cotton lining.  I used metal boning which were stitched into channels.  The front is closed with a metal busk and the back is laced together with grommets.  To give it some flare I added trim and a ribbon.
