1920s Ladies Corset Pattern
1920s Ladies Corset Pattern

RC1234- 1920s Ladies Corset Pattern. Make yourself some great Flapper underthings with this pattern! You need our Roaring Twenties corset pattern based on an original corset from the 1920s. Fits busts 32" through 48", waists 28" through 44" and hips 38" to 54" with instructions how to alter for larger sizes. Designed to flatten the bust and ignore the waist, it is the essential garment to wear under your 1920s dresses. All sizes are included in one pattern. Detailed instructions, period tailoring directions, embellishment suggestions, and historical notes are also included. Reconstucting History uses the original patterns as a basis, then grades the pattern in modern sizes, up to 48" bust and 44" waist, so they'll fit far more sizes than the original patterns ever did. Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes. Notions: thread, stay (twill) tape, hooks and eyes, elastic material. Yardage Requirements: 1.5 yards at least 45” wide. In the 1910s, the corset was quite a different thing from those Victorian waist cinchers. By the era of the Great War (1914-1918), corsets were no longer designed to support the bust and to reduce the waist. Matter of fact, many teens corsets did not cover the bust at all. Instead they were more along the lines of what we would term “girdles” today. The fashionable silhouette of the early decades of the 20th century was long and columnar. The 1910s corsets were designed to create this silhouette by smoothing the waist and hips. In addition to the length and lower body position, another change from the classic corset shape was the addition of suspenders for holding up one’s stockings. Up until this time, stockings were held up by being tied around the knees with garters. In the 1910s, elastic suspenders were attached to the bottom of corsets and gave the first incarnation of what has become the garter belt today.
