Tonight I processed and uploaded the remaining photos of the corded Regency corset, which is now with its owner. One of my friends was kind enough to model the corset, even if it was a little too small for her.
This is a bespoke plus-sized corded regency corset, made with drill cover and coutil interlining, with padded shoulder straps, drawstring on the bust, a busk pocket, and fan lacing. The chemise is made from cotton muslin, with a drawstring at the neckline. The bodiced petticoat is also made from cotton muslin, and is open at the sides of the bodice, which are held closed with silk taffeta ribbon through hand-stitched eyelets. It also has cotton lace along the bottom edge.
Core: One layer of corset coutil
Cover: Cotton drill
Edging: Cotton taffeta ribbon
Cording: Poly twist cord inserted between the coutil and drill
Piecing: three panels per side, two gores per bust, and two shoulder straps
Busk Pocket: 2″ wide, 13″ long pocket, opening at the bottom, hand-sewn eyelets tied with silk taffeta ribbon
Bust Drawstring: Silk taffeta ribbon sewn into the top edging at the bust
Shoulder Straps: Sewn at back, tie in front, padded over the arc of the shoulder
