TWELVE SECTION CORSELETTE

**To begin this draft**, draw the beginning outline of the previous lessno and continue as
follows: Measure from 1 to 2, 1/12 of size 36 or 3 inches; from 3 to 4, 2 inches; and
from 5 to 6, 2½ inches, and draw a line from 2 to 4 and 4 to 6 down to 8. Take out the
usual space from 4 to 9, ¾ inch, and connect lines from 2 to 9 and 9 to 6. Curve from 6
down to 10, as shown on diagram. The space from 8 to 10 is 1 inch. To give the back the
proper curve from hip to bottom line, take the equal space between 8 and 10, making X,
and curve the back from the hip, which is from 6, down to X, as shown on diagram.

**Remember that the line** from 11 to 13 down to 22 is the usual side line. Divide the
space from 2 to 11, making 12; from 9 to 13, making 14; and draw a line down from 12 to
14 down to 15. Take out each side of 14, which is at the waist line, to 16 and 17, ¾ inch,
and connect with lines from 16 to 17 up to 12, and also from 16 to 17 to 18. A is at the
side line and hip line. Add from A to 21 and 25, ¾ inch, and connect 13 to 21. Then take
out from 13 to 24, ¾ inch, and connect 24 to 25, as shown on diagram. Connect 24 to
57, which will finish the side seam of the inner part of the front.

**Now finish hip curves**. Add to both sides of 15 to 19 and 20, ¼ inch, and curve from
18 to 19 and 18 to 20, as shown on diagram. Finish side hip curves by adding from 22 to 23
and 26, ¾ inch each side, and finish side seam by curving from 13 to 21 down to 23. Finish
front side seam by curving from 24 to 25, down to 26, as shown on diagram.

**Now make front section.** Raise the f ront top from 27 to 28 and 29 to 30, 1 inch, and
draw a line from 28 to 30. Measure from 30 to 31, 1/12 of size or 3 inches, and the same
amount from 31 to 32. Measure the same amount on the waist line from 33 to 34 and 34
to 35, and then draw lines down from 31 to 34 down to 36 and from 32 to 35 down to 37.

**Now make a long waist line.** Measure from 33 to 38, 1 inch, and connect a line from
24 to 38, up to the front. Now measure for the dart by takin gout from 39 to 40, ½ inch,
and from 39 across to 41, 1 inch. Take out from 42 to 43 also ½ inch and from 42 to 44,
across, 1 inch. Then divide the space for the height of the dart between 31 and 39, making
45, and connect 40 and 41 up to 45. Curve the outer part of the front from 31 to 47, and the
inner part of the front from 31 to 49, 45 down to 41, as shown on the diagram. Divide
the space from 32 to 42, making 46, and connect 43 and 44 to 46. Then take out ¼ inch
from 32 to 52 and curve from 52 towards 46 down to 44.

**To finish the bottom** of these parts, take out from 36 to 48, ¼ inch, and connect a
line from 40 to 48. Square a line down from 41 to 50. Now take out from 37 to 51, ¼ inch,
and connect 43 to 51. Now square a line down from 44 to 53, as shown on diagram. This
will complete the front parts for a tight fitting garment, with all necessary seams allowed.
