Victorian Corset by Verdaera Victorian Corset by Verdaera
This is the corset I've been working on for my steampunk costume, though technically I made it historically accurate so I can wear it with historical Victorian costumes. I used the pattern from the book "Corsets: Historical Patterns and Techniques" by Jill Saleen, using the pattern on page 71, and the flossing design from page 74. I used The Corsetmaking Revolution PDF ( [link] ) to size the pattern, which was invaluable, plus the advice of several of my DeviantArt friends! This is the 3rd corset I've made, and my first Victorian one. I used two layers of cotton coutil, and cream silk dupioni from SilkBaron.com for the outer layer. The busk, grommets, and boning all came from CorsetMaking.com. I also hand-dyed the lace to a chocolate brown color. I liked the details of the wider boning channels sewn on the outside rather than the inside, and the cording at the bust. This was a fun project, and I know I made it right because it's pretty comfortable. I have a 24.5 inch waist, and I only lace this down to 23.5 (No need to kill myself, I don't have a lot to squish down anyway)

Here's another shot of the corset that's not in the Costume gallery:

Excuse me, this may seem like a very silly ques but what is the name of the gown your wearing underneath the corset? I am having a hell of a time finding one to wear with my corset cause I don't know the name of it. :( I am very new to costuming.

Not a silly question at all :) It's called a chemise, or on occasion, a shift. They are very easy to make, just search for instructions for a chemise on whichever era your corset will be, for instance, a Victorian Chemise. Otherwise, there are plenty of shops that sell them to wear under costumes :)

This is amazing!

I was wondering, do you take costume commissions? I'm interested in a leather costume and I was wondering if you took commissions.

This may sound like like a stupid question, but what are the fastenings on the front called?

That's a busk in the front :) There are a few different kinds, some that serve as a closure and some that are just a solid piece. Here's where I got mine, that show different kinds: [link]

PS, loving the Castiel icon :)
