Grazie per aver letto!
P.S. questa volta sto per caricare ogni foto dei momenti essenziali della costruzione del corsetto, così che possiate comprendere meglio.
This time I'm really back! My new intention is to make a historically inspired victorian corset, it must seem like sent to me from the past.
I'll try to use each single skills of mine to make it, and I'm going to use materials similar to those used in the past.
Since it must seem that the corset comes out from the past, or at least from a movie set in the 19th century, I thought to make some further researches about the pretext.
The best way to find out a lot of information about this, is to collect a lot of pictures, believe me!This is the best way ever to do it!
The thing I noticed most, by looking at all the pictures I grouped, is that each corset or at least most of them, have cordings. It helps very much to support the bust, in fact it is placed underneath it to avoid the corset to wrinkle, furthermore it is usually placed around the hips or just over them on each side of the corset.
I'm going to use a spoon busk, which is named like this for its unusual shape, the lower part is curved and larger while the upper part is similar to the upper part of a regular busk.
The latest point concerns the embroideries, which I'm going to sew on the corset by hand both on the upper edge of the corset and on the lower one.
They are useful to hold the bones firm inside the boning channels, by this way they won't be able to move up and down, avoiding the fabric to wrinkle and stretch on some of the most critic parts.
Another important matter to deal with is the width of the boning channels, the bones have to slide inside their channels without any difficulties but at the same time not too easily.
The right width has to be calculated taking note of the thickness of the bones too, which is usually a millimeter, by adding this to their width, you are able to find out the measurements to sew the boning channels.
Thanks for reading!
P.S. this time I'm going to upload each essential picture of the corset while I build it, to make it easier for you to understand!
