PeriodCorsets' Shop Announcement

The creators of Period Corsets ® are sometimes dubbed the “Corset girls from Seattle”. This is where we design, pattern, cut and stitch our corsets, petticoats and everything you see on our website.

Our corset shapes are universal. FASHION maybe be the future. But, Period Corsets® imbues history with the quest to encapsulate the impossibly shifting graceful female form in all its perfect permutations.

Whether it’s Ibsen or a Minoan Goddess that you are seeking; Period Corsets® is your link from the present to the past.

Since 1996 we have made custom costumes, historic corsets and fancy underwear ensembles. In 2001 we focused our talents exclusively on our runaway best selling creation, a line called “Period Corsets®: Your Complete Source for Historic Undergarments”. Today we’ve come full circle and are offering custom costumes made-to-order on this Etsy site. We will still be using our classic period shapes, high quality standards, and our trademark clean construction techniques that our fans have become so used to.

On this site you will find one-of-a-kind garments and ensembles, each fabric lovingly picked for its resonance with the historic period, its superior quality, and how it fits in with the whole ensemble. If you are looking at our circa 1660 Cavalier look and the colors start to hum in your mind—that’s when we know we’ve achieved the harmony of style, shape and color to which we aspire. You might also find some whimsy tossed in for good measure.

Please peruse our shop; if you don’t find exactly what you are looking for, email Hilary with your personal costume requests. Happy shopping!
