Civil War Corset:
This is a corset I have had this corset lying around forever. The otherday I realized it was almost done...except for three little bits of flossing. I realized how silly that was so I sat down and did it!

Anyway, in my head this corset has a lot of bag "karma" attached to it, so I have decided to sell it.

I have included under the cut all relevant measurements as well as LOTS of pictures of the finished piece.  )

This has been a pretty bad week (between midterms and having my computer stolen) so I decided I deserved a good break! Having gotten my sewing machine back, I put my new zipper foot to use and worked on my Civil war and regency corsets.


In an Ironic Side note, my computer got stolen right AFTER I put on the lost Decal. I guess those numbers really are CURSED...

There are a lot of Regency events in the Bay Area, and I felt it was high time I made myself something to wear to them. I started in on making regency stays quite a while ago, but it's only been recently (Last two months or so) that My final mock-up got fit, and everything Fell into place after getting some sound advice over in the Corsetmakers community:(http://community.livejournal.com/corsetmakers/1764673.html)

The Pattern is from Period Costumes for Stage and Screen 1800-1909 by Jean Hunnisett. It is made from one Layer cotton (lining) one layer linen (Inner layer) and one layer Satin coutil as the fashion fabric. My first two mock-ups were made from duck, and the final (See the link above) from HEAVY artists canvas. Hunnisett's pattern uses plastic boning, I decided to replace this will a decorative cording pattern on the front, back, and gores of the stays. The finished stays will have a wooden busk, and some zip tie reinforcement if needed.
