Small but perfectly formed! As is the bodice book. More focus on theatrical costuming than period correct, but not an inch of these tiny books goes to waste; lots of simple, practical information for creating your own corset from scratch.

Gives good basic idea of simplified corset structure from 1890, 1860, 1750 as well as various forms of underwear, trims and fastenings.
