This corset pattern was created by me, Deb Salisbury, owner of The Mantua-Maker Historical Sewing Patterns. The critical underpinning of the Renaissance torso was known as a pair of bodies – today we refer to this garment as a corset. The term “pair of bodies” might refer to an undergarment, or it could be the outer bodice, depending on the context. Some quilted bodies appear to have been unboned, but when used as a supportive undergarment, the “quilted bodies”, supported by cane, reeds, “bent” (bundles of hollow but sturdy grass), horn (for a very stiff silhouette), or whalebone, created the conical silhouette of the period. Keep in mind that this is not a lift and separate, curvaceous corset. It is a smash ‘em flat and confine to a cone corset.

You will also need boning to create this garment.

This pattern includes 14 pages of instructions with historical tips, and 1 pattern sheet. It is printed on bond paper, and enclosed in a reclosable plastic bag. All sizes 2 – 30 are included.
Bust sizes, in inches: 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 59 62

1500 - 1820 Hardwood Corset Busk
This type of busk was used to keep the front of a back-opening corset or stays upright and stiff. It fits my Renaissance Quilted Pair of Bodies, my Georgian Stays, and my Regency Corset.

The hardwood busk is approximately 14” long, 1/8” thick, 1 3/4” wide at the top, and 1 1/8” wide at the bottom. All dimensions vary slightly.

I include one page of historical information with your busk. I didn’t make the busk, only the information sheet. My supplier didn’t tell me what type of wood it is – I suspect that varies with the batch.

** If I can ship multiple item orders cheaper than my posted rates, I'll refund any excess postage over $1.00. **

Thank you for looking!
