How to make a tight lining for a dress or a dress form or a tight corset cover


Another idea for 1930’s skirt closings. Shows the alternating position of the hooks and eyes for “a more substantial closing”.

From”Tight Linings and Boning” a Woman’s Institute of Domestic Arts and Sciences booklet (1915) by Mary Brooks Picken. I found a complete copy online at

and I have selected the last section: “Girdles, or Waist-Line Foundations” in the url above, but you could navigate to the beginning or let me know and I will copy those pages.
