The Challenge: Wood, Metal, Bone
Fabric: Silk shantung, cotton lining
Pattern: Truly Victorian's Late Victorian Corset
Year: around 1880
Notions: Embroidery thread for the flossing, lacing, thread, metal eyelets, and all the bones...
How historically accurate is it? The pattern is good; I'm not sure about using brown as my color though.
Hours to complete: I lost count. 4 for the flossing. :)
First worn: Last weekend as part of a Steampunk outfit.
Total cost: About $60 maybe?
