1790 corset from Jill Salen's book

Yesterday I finished one of the two corset. Here is transitional corset from Jill Salen's book. It is my interpretation of this type of corset from late 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century. Corset was sewn entirely by hand. I have made a few changes here.
The top layer is white linen and next two layers is white cotton and cotton canvas (inside) and the linnins is beige cotton. I wanted to used some scraps. It was completely hand stitched with silk and cotton white thread. For lacing holes I used twisted thread. Bonnig
has always been a problem - I used bamboo stick. My alterations is I changed the type of schoulder straples - It was sewing by hand without two lacing holes in front and I wanted corset with binding. I cannot understand how working non bias cutting tape binding on the edge of corset, so I must used bias cut tape. Jill Salen and Linda Baumgarten in her book Costume close -up both mentioned that in 18th century not exsiting yet bias cut. Corset will be wearing with the round gown and I wanted to sewing round gown from Tidens Tøj collection with a petticoat.
