Hope you had a lovely weekend!
I started making a 1910s corset this weekend using Jen of Festive Attyre’s pattern she took from an original corset and very graciously posted for free on her website. In case you were not aware, Bridges on the Body is doing a 1910s corset sew-a-long right now as well. Since I’ve been madly patterning away here for the first 1910s patterns for Wearing History I figured it was high time I made myself a corset to wear underneath the samples I’ll be making soon :) Still a way to go before you get a sneak peak, but I’m sooo excited!
In fitting my corset and deciding on length and such, I flipped through my old Gimbel Brothers catalog from 1912-1913 and found two pages of lovely corset images. I hope you enjoy, too! Click on the images for a larger version.
