Edwardian Unmentionables

I’ve been quiet on here for a while. One reason is that I’ve been super busy, but the other is that I’ve been working on Edwardian undergarments for more Downton Abbey type sewing this year!

My 19teens corset! I made it from a pattern that the blogger Festive Attyre made from an antique corset that she thinks is from 1916 or so. This is my first real corset that I made with coutil and steel boning.

I also made a 19teens early brassier from a pattern made by blogger Historically Dressed from an antique brassier and 1913 combinations made from a reprint of an antique pattern.

I adore my combinations! They are super fun to wear!

I’m already working on a 1914 dress but in the meantime you can see more of my Edwardian sewing here: Dressing Downton Projects, brassier and combinations, corset.

  • Looks amazing! I was just looking at this… http://wesewretro.com/2013/02/montgomery-ward-mystery-catalogue-identified/#comment-110028 …. and was asking how the heck a lady sat down? and it looks like you could tell me 1st hand. How does a rigid garment flex at the hip joint?
