Historical undergarments from the Victorian era

November 19, 2015

Hello everyone!

A few months ago, I decided to construct an entire Victorian outfit. And in doing so, one always start from the inside out, building a foundation and the right silhouette for the finished ensemble.

Today I was finally able to dress up in my very first set of Victorian undergarments, complete with chemise, split crotch drawers and corset. And it felt and looked rather splendid 🙂 The process has been really interesting, and I have learned so much about womens wear of the 19th century.


The pattern for this set is Laughing Moon #100, the corset is the Silverado version with bust gores. It is a good pattern for first time corsetiers, and since it includes chemises and drawers it really is good value for money.

If you would like to follow my journey towards the finished outfit, or just read more about these first pieces, you can do so here.

Thanks for looking, and happy sewing!
