Victorian Underwear Set

Added Nov 10, 2012

Wellington, New ...






a module of my second and final year of costume construction required me to make a set of victorian underwear, consisting of combinations, a corset, a bustle and petticoat.

photographs are taken by leah reilly, and my model is bridget carpenter.

    love the color and the shape of the corset. what are your favourite sources for corset patterns?? I would love to make one, but still have to improve my techniques I think :)

      thank you :) this one was, i think, drafted from a jean hunnisett pattern – i found a picture online of the direct pattern i worked from – “http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-4MecehxPt_k/T57m0z_k6zI/AAAAAAAAAIA/lCJBN924c6E/s320/Scan+corset1.jpg” – it’s not really big enough to be of much help, but i believe it’s from her “corsets and crinolines” book?? basically, each square equals an inch, and once you’ve drafted it out you can alter it to fit your body measurements more accurately. :) i hope this is helpful!
