This is also available as a completed custom corset in two payments: https://www.etsy.com/listing/81685999/roses-titanic-edwardian-corset-first

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This pattern is drafted with the presumption that the user will already be familiar with now to cut and put together a corset. Because of this, instructions are minimal.

For Rose, being laced into her corset by her mother was intentionally and directly symbolic of being bound into the future her mother and society expected. For you, there is no such symbolism, only an undergarment of beauty.

Corsets were once serious business. Without one, a woman may as well have been naked. Some states even enacted laws prohibiting women from being in public without one. Yes, it is easy to the trained eye to tell is a lady is in a corset, a bra, or nothing at all. In states without laws mandating corsets, only the boldest of women went without corsets.

Edwardian corsets were often much longer than corsets of previous eras, extending down to the hips giving a very clean line, free from tummy bulge. For this they are called longlines. Usually they ended under the bust with the chemise underneath pulled tightly to contain and smooth the bust. Rose is an exception. Titanic happened a couple years after the end of the Edwardian era (1912 was when Titanic sailed and sank, and the Edwardian era ended with the death of the king in 1910). Your corset can be made mid-bust, as Rose's, or under the bust, which was far more typical.

This listing is for a custom PATTERN made to your measurements, plus I will assist by phone, e-mail, Skype, or instant message, when necessary. Please do not take this to mean that I will be walking you through every step, or giving a class.

As a disclaimer, as with all patterns, whether custom or commercial, making a mock-up to double-check fit is always recommended.

For most sizes, you will need 20 bones, all flat or 4 flat and 16 spiral (all flat makes for a more severe corset) and a busk, lengths will vary by your measurements. You will also need, again depending on size:
1 1/2 -2 1/2 yards of a non-stretch fabric, such as cotton coutil or duck
brocade or other sort of fashion fabric outside, half as much as the coutil or duck (OPTIONAL)
2 1/2 - 4 yards of lace, if you choose to use lace
1"-wide grosgrain ribbon the measurement of your waist
3 dozen grommets
6 yards of lacing.

This pattern will be mailed as it is not generated by a computer.

SIZING: After you decide to make a purchase, I will contact you with measurements I need to draft the pattern.

TIME: This pattern takes up to ten days after I receive your measurements.

SHIPPING INFORMATION: I DO ship internationally. Please convo me directly for international rates. All shipping is by UPS.

PAYMENT INFORMATION: I accept Square for payments. An invoice will be sent to you from from Square Invoicing with payment instructions, AFTER all sizing information is received and details are agreed upon. While payment isn't made the very second you order, it is much more secure than Paypal. By paying with a credit or debit card, you are protected and still have the right to file disputes, only with your card-issuer directly. Paypal also requires that good be delivered within 21 days, which is simply not alway possible when something is custom-made and will take longer than 21 days to produce and ship.

When purchasing, please check the "other" checkbox and an invoice will be sent directly to you. Thank you!
