Make yourself a Victorian corset!
The 1880s are often thought of as the height of corsetry. Colourful and highly-decorated creations were worn by women every day, and many of them survive for us to study. Our French-style corset pattern, based on an original pattern from the 1880s, has all the hallmarks of these lovely undergarments.
Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.
Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
