1913 Late Edwardian Corset -

Perfect for 1909-1916 fashions

A wonderful NEW pattern for the proper Titanic and 19-Teens silhouette! 

Based on an original pattern found in an 1913 issue of De Gracieuce, a Dutch magazine and similar to Harpers Bazzar, this Late Edwardian Corset is perfect for under 1909-1916 style dresses. It will provide the long smooth hipline needed for the slim skirts of this era.

Corset pattern has two height variations: the low bust height comes up to just under the bust which is suitable for 1912-1916; and the high bust which is perfect for 1909-1912 and for figures that prefer full bust support. 

Pattern has six panels on each side with a center front busk and grommets at the back. The busk and boning stop short of the hem for ease of wear. The instructions are for a single layer corset which was the most typical of the period.

This pattern has been modified slightly to accommodate the different cup sizes and modern body types but retains most of the proportions and elegance of the original garment. The original pattern shape is for the low height in the D-cup sizings, with the A, B, C, and DD cup sizes adjusted for. 

Sizes included:
Bust: 28" to 58" with specific pieces for cups A, B, C, D and DD
