Be "uplifted" softly by this unboned Regency bodice!
In the early Regency period, the style was to discard corsetry and appear "as nature intended". But women who weren't blessed with the perfect figure still used foundation garments to form their bodies into the fashionable shape.
Our easy-to-use pattern, based on an extant brassiere in the Victoria and Albert Museum, helps you make your own light, wrap-around bra circa 1800-1830.

Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
