Lately I’ve been looking at a lot of turn of the century brassiere and corset covers.
I’ve found several different styles and thought I would share them with you before finishing my “Bodice” entry at saturday.
First some 1900-1915s lose and Lacey corset covers
Pattern 3 different verions.
And a few tight fitting ones from a couple of decades earlier.
Then we continue with the old time brassiere.This add really tells us a lot about the fashionable form. (and look they had full refund to).
Pattern for “Brassiere”
And a super cute short one.
This faux boobs are hilarious, but I can really se the need for them in order to achive the sometimes extrem hourglas shape of the time.
And let’s finish of with some kind of hybrid between corset and brassiere..
I also noticed that “Wearing History” seems to be working on a simular project – check it out, it is facinating.
