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...

When simplicity changed the pattern number, some kind person put the corset pattern on ebay as a buy it now auction for $4.50. The difference is that the new pattern includes bloomers, and the chemise has shorter sleeves: http://www.simplicity.com/p-1802-costumes.aspx

I'v actually had this corset cut out and ready to start sewing for about a month...but the Gussets scared me!
