Item details

This Regency corset pattern was created by me, Deb Salisbury, owner of The Mantua-Maker Historical Sewing Patterns. I designed the busk, but another company makes it.
This pattern includes 10 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. You will also need boning to create this garment.

A variation available is that of the riding corset, with eyelets in place of the second hip gusset. This option allows for greater adjustability in the hip area.

The simple chemise-like garment of the early 19th century was worn over a chemise and petticoat -- and a corset, if she was over 17 years or a size A bust. The fashionable silhouette cannot be achieved if the bounce remains when the dancing stops. The long corset went out of fashion for a while, but came back with a vengeance.

The goal of this type of corset was not to reduce the waist, but to push up the bust. Reviewers complained that the fashionable lady’s bosom looked like a shelf aimed toward her chin. Others claimed her anatomy pointed east and west, instead of north.

1500 - 1820 Hardwood Corset Busk
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.

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.

Please read all instructions before touching your fabric. There are tips along the way to make your life easier!

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

This pattern is FANTASTIC. There is so much excellent information in the notes and the sizing is extremely well done with plenty of information on how to adjust for larger/smaller bust and hip sizes. Overall this is truly a wonderful pattern and I couldn't be more happy! Once I move on to sewing some other time periods I'm sure I'll be returning here for more underthings patterns! On top of it all, shipping was quite fast! Thank you again! :)

I was very excited to get this pattern and busk, but when I got it in the mail, the busk had been broken. I contacted Deb right away and she sent a new one right away. Her service was amazing and now I can finish my corset. Thanks Deb!

FYI 1 - All instructions are in English.

FYI 2 - I do have a cat (allergy warning; my cat has such fine fur I find stray hairs in places he could *never* get to!) but he has little contact with my patterns. My home is smoke-free, but vintage books and trim may carry their own distinctive odors.
