Laughing Moon Historically Accurate Corset Patterns
Two Victorian style corset patterns with underwear from Laughing Moon. These are historically accurate and modfied to suit todays figure.
The "Dore" corset pattern is a 'straight seam' double layered corset, and the "Silverado" corset pattern has bust gores and optional hip gores. The envelope also includes patterns for a Chemise and Open Drawers.
The Dore pattern is a good beginners level corset whilst the Silverado pattern is a bit more fiddly, so it is more suitable for the more experienced.
This set of corset patterns is excellent value for money. Not only do you get extremely consice and easy to follow instructions for 2 entirely different corsets, plus chemise and drawers, but also a very detailed page on the history of corsets and a bibliography so that you can do more research if you wish.
The patterns and all the instructions are printed on heavy paper and are colour coded for ease of tracing your particular size. The pattern envelope is made of firm polythene and is big enough to store your corset peices while you make them. The whole package is quite large - over an inch thick - and consequently heavy - It will give you hours and hours of fun!
Sizes 6-26 (Bust 30.5" to 48", Waist 23" to 40" approx) are all included in single pattern.
For the Silverado corset, you will need a 12" busk for size 6, 13" busk for size 8-14 inclusive, or a 14" busk for size 16-26 inclusive.
