This is a DIGITAL sewing pattern for a late Victorian Corset about 1880 (half bust) and a matching chemise, wearable for presentations until 1900

This sewing pattern shows an 1880´s corset with five panels, adapted from an extant pattern. The corset should be made from Coutil and lined with a midweight cotton fabric. All seams are boned, as well as along both sides of the lacing. Additional boning can be added as desired, using boning channels made from Coutil strips.
At the front a spoon busk or a wide straight busk is provided, but can be replaced by a narrow one.

Also suitable for steampunk costumes.
