Mapleton, Utah, ...
I made this pattern based off of an antique corset from around 1908, and then had a fun time trying to figure out how to sew it together! I’m used to staystitching and clipping inward curves to fit them to outer curves, but since I was making this as a single layer corset I wanted to use flat felled seams…so much for the staystitching or clipping! So lets just say I did a lot of ease stitching on those outer curves (loose enough that I could pull it all out when I was done), as well as basting and re-basting before the final seams.
Coutil (I ordered mine from https://www.farthingalescorsetmakingsupplies.com/products.php?cat=coutil. I bought the “Brocade coutil, rose pattern, white 56” and then dyed it pink to match a corset from “The Great Race” 1965)
