Finish corset 1820 - 39

Today I finish my corset. For me it seems like wedding corset. Corset have embroidery like birds, heart with an arrow, some flowers in basket and small stars. Maybe it is symbolised wedding?
Embroidery is mostly stitching with a chain stitch and herringbone stitch on the linen and cotton, and lining with second cotton material - my corset is maked form 3 layers. I hate to make eyelets, it was horrible for my hands. Shoulder straps are pinned ( I don' t see on the photo this construction).
On the photo I wear my 18th century chemise, for demonstartion and my renaissance corded petticoat, and pantaloons which I bought in second hand shop. Now I will to work in chemise, corded petticoat and dress.
