Elizabethan Tabbed Corset of Canvas

Added Jul 7, 2009

by thethreadmage







I made this using my own finagling. There really aren’t enough extant corsets of the period and region left for any one pattern to be accurate, anyway.
Also, in the photos I am wearing a petticoat from the American Civil War period. Ignore the inaccuracy if you can, I just wanted to show how the tabs would behave above a farthingale. It is fully boned over every single square inch using approx. 40 yards of boning

Material Notes

pink cotton canvas, white cotton bias, steel grommets, black cotton ribbon, plastic 1/2" boning




Garment Type


Myself. Bwahahaha!

    dinkley101: No, I find it is more comfortable because the weight is distributed evenly instead of just at a few points. I guess it feels more like an exoskeleton than clothing.

    crlt: I suppose you mean bones? I have no idea how many; Some of them are just an inch long, others more like 28 inches. It’s so many, though.
