        Bjarne,

        Can't wait to see this one when it's done.  All your costumes are so beautiful -- although you don't seem to have them posted on your website anymore.  Are you redesigning your website?

              Hello-
              Recently (two weeks ago) I bought a custom made
              corset, for the smashing price of $150.00. Long story
              short, I wore it for one day and had bloody scabbs
              from where the boning had gone through the corset, my
              chemise and me. The woman refuses to take the corset
              back because she said I am to big for it.
              First of all this thing was supposed to have been
              custom made, and it had 2 1/2 inches of spring in the
              back.

              I am not that knowledgeable about corsets, but I
              thought that amount of spring was within the fitting
              range. The corset was comfortable with the exception
              of where it was jabbing me in the back.


              Due to this experiance, I am looking to make my own. I
              found several sites where I can get the boning, busks,
              and other materials.

              What is a good fabric to make a corset out of? As a
              re-enactor I wear mine 3 to 5 days a week, from May to
              October. Would a good quality silk be as durable as I
              would need it to be? What is a good choice for the
              backing of the corset?

              I am also looking for the tips and tricks and what to
              avoid from those who have made corsets.

              Thank you much
              Terri Lee

                Since your corset will have so much use, you might want to spend the money and make your corset out of Coutil. It's a fabric especially for corsets since it wont stretch like a twill, it's an all natural cotton, and it is lightweight but still sturdy enough that bones (if they are tipped correctly) wont go through it. Lacis is a shop in Berkeley, CA that has everything you need to make corsets including the coutil, bones, laces and patterns if you need help. You can find them online. It's an addictively fabulous store!!!!!

                  There is really no excuse for that happening to you--on your first
                  wearing of the corset, especially. She really ought to give you your
                  money back.

                  An excellent corset pattern that I've used frequently is this one
                  from Past Patterns:

                  http://www.pastpatterns.com/213.html

                  It actually dates a little later than the Civil War era, but would be
                  serviceable for your purposes. If you really want to be very
                  accurate, Past Patterns is an excellent source; they have a variety
                  of patterns.

                  I've found that using coutil is comfortable (it breathes well) and
                  very durable. You can buy coutil fabric at most costume supply
                  houses, including AlterYears:

                  http://www.alteryears.com/supplies/Corset_sup.html

                  AlterYears also sells boning. I suggest the 1/4 inch wide flat steel
                  boning. It comes in a variety of sizes, so you don't need to worry
                  about cutting it and them trying to seal off the ends so they don't
                  dig into your skin. It also is firm, yet flexible. In addition, they
                  sell bone casing, which is helpful, although whenever possible, I
                  prefer to stitch channels for the boning.

                  Have fun!

                  Kristina
