Mid-Victorian corset cover

Postby Cjozla » Mon Aug 08, 2016 1:23 pm

Hi - newbie here. I'm working in the period 1975-1885 and am currently making up the corset, and then combinations. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a pattern for a corset cover for this time period?

(As a side note when I tried searching for corset cover or "corset cover" in the search box it kept telling me the word corset was ignored. Is there a better way to search multiple word terms?)

Thanks!

You can use any regular bodice pattern to make a corset cover. Usually, a corset cover for pre-1880 is based on a Ball gown bodice, with a low neckline and short sleeves. Pattern TV416 - 1875 Ballgown bodice would be great, made as a single layer of muslin and no boning. For post 1880, corset covers come in both the low neckline and the high neckline. So TV420 1878 Cuirass Bodice would be good for later time periods. And you can use the puff evening sleeve, or leave it sleeveless.
