## GIRDLE WITH ELASTIC SIDE INSERT

LESSON 3

**To draft a pattern** of a girdle with elastic side section, make the foundation of the
first lesson of the girdle and divide the waist line of the foundation from 1 to 4, making 5,
and at the bottom from 2 to 8, making 9, and curve at the waist, as usual, from 1 to A to 4.
Then make a 3 inch elastic section. Measure from A to 10 and 11, 1½ inches each side,
and make bottom of elastic section ½ inch wider than the top. Therefore, measure from 9
to 12 and 9 to 13, 1¾ inches each and connect lines from 10 to 12 and 11 to 13.

**Take out the dart** in the usual manner. Take out 1½ inches from 10 to 14 and 11 to
15; take out 1 inch from 12 to 18 and 13 to 19; and make the usual curves from 15 to 17
down to 19 and from 14 to 16 down to 18. Allow from 18 to X and 19 to X, ½ inch, and
finish at bottom from X to 2 and X to 8. Allow ^{3}/8 inch for each seam.

**This lesson** is an example of how deductions can be made for any type of garment
from each side of the front and back and then worked the same to a side insert or new
section which can be applied to a corset or corselette. All that must be remembered is
to allow for the necessary seams.
