I’ve been working on and off on a new pattern that I started last year. No, it’s not a corset, but I will say that the late 1890s and early 1900s are inspiring me a lot lately in view of this project.
Here’s some very pretty corset ads from the November 1905 issue of The Delineator to share with you.
This ad is beautifully drawn, but also kind of humourous. If only this lady knew her corset was visible to the outside world by her shadow! I’ll gladly take her jacket and hat, too.
I absolutely adore the line art drawings of this period. The ones on this WB Corsets ads are so beautiful and romantic, especially with the cute little cherubs and garlands of flowers, and the beautiful gathers and bows on the lingerie.
If you’re interested in making underwear of this period, Truly Victorian has recently come out with an S Curve corset pattern and an Edwardian Lingerie pattern. Heather’s patterns are amazing- I’m a big fan and customer, so I can’t recommend them enough. I have purchased both patterns and they’re in my stash just waiting to be made. Images like these make me wish I had time to start them!
