Truly Victorian TV110 1880s Late Victorian Corset Pattern
Late Victorian Corset Pattern
A wonderful pattern for a good Victorian silhouette! The support and shaping from this corset can give you a foundation for most of the Victorian era from the 1850s to 1900.
This corset pattern is taken from an original pattern found in the May 31, 1886 issue of De Gracieuce, a Dutch magazine. It was published in several other magazines of the time as well including La Mode Illustre and Harpers Bazzar.
This pattern has been modified slightly to accommodate the different cup sizes and modern body types, but retains most of the original proportions and elegance of the original garment. This corset has 6 panels, a center front busk, and laces in the center back.
