To make this corset, prepare the complete foundation of the six section girdle. Raise 2 inches from 1 to 2, 5 to 6 and 3 to 4, as in previous lesson. For the front and back darts take out a trifle less at the top than you have taken out at the waist line darts. For instance, if you have taken out at 7 and 9, 4 inch, at each side, take out a trifle less from both sides of 8 to 19 and 20, and likewise at the back dart from 23 and 24 so that there shall be a little shaping at the break of the waist, as shown on the diagram.

The dart at the side seam shall also be followed as in the previous lesson. If, for instance, the space from 5 to 11 and 13 is about 1 inch, take out only about 7/8 inch at each side of 6 to 12 and 6 to 14. Now connect 11 to 12 and 13 to 14, as shown on the diagram.

Follow the bottom darts at front and back panels and also the side seam, the same as has been explained on the six section girdle in Lesson 3. Also follow the instructions of front gore insert as explained in the previous lesson.
