Slightly, But Not Entirely, A Corsetry Project

I might be doing some light corsetry? Maybe?

 

 

I’ve been wanting to make my own bras for a while, but none of my research was really inspiring me (underwires, yuck).  When I saw this post on Wearing History (through this blog I believe!), I thought: wait a second.  Why not take some cues from corsetry instead?  So I drafted this up.  It’s based on Regency short stays but in no way intended to be period accurate.  I’m not sure how wearable it will be, but I guess I’ll see when it’s finished!  I pinned the most useful visual resources I found on my Pinboard, and I will hopefully have a post up on Regency corsetry resources soon, since somebody else should benefit from my several evenings’ worth of research!

 

This project has also been sparking a lot of thought for me about self-sufficiency, invention, and self-made wardrobes.  If that’s your cup of tea, the full post is over here at my blog.  :)
