Another project off my list. I worked on this off and on for several months. A majority of the construction was done over the course of a week. The actual finishing like the eyelets and binding and the busk took far longer then sewing the boning channels.
Two layers of cotton duck with the outer layer of red cotton sateen (standing in for silk, ask my cat about it). Hand sewn with black silk thread. Self made bias tape, and hand sewn eyelets with matching cotton floss.
The pattern is my usual bodice block. It is boned with cable ties, the boning diagram is rough nod to Pfaltzgrafin Dorothea Sabine von Neuberg’s corset.
