1870s Corset

1870s Corset

I created this 1870s corset to be worn underneath the 1875 evening dress. It is based on the 1873 corset pattern from Corsets and Crinolines by Norah Waugh. This corset features light boning and heavy cording. Th project took two weeks to complete. 

Materials: coutil, cotton satin, spiral steel boning. 


After selecting the pattern I collected images of corsets from the 1870s for reference.
