Foundations Revealed introduces you to the beautiful world of original corset patterns.

Hearts corset, based on a 1902 pattern, by Sparklewren Bespoke CorsetryThese articles all use original corset patterns. They help us to see into the minds of the expert designers of the Golden Era of Corsetry and uncover the secrets of fit and style that modern corsetry is only just beginning to explore.

Modern corsetmakers can use them to branch out from the tired, vertical seamed, generic “Victorian” style that's so common now, and into something fresh and new, yet classically elegant. They also allow costumers to move beyond the limited number of commercially available corset patterns and explore styles more suited for your body type. 

Our writers figure out and test each pattern for you, so that you can skip the learning curve and make your best work today.

  Oh man! That looks nice!  
  Thank you! I am very excited about finishing this project :-)  
  Very informative article and it looks like it will be a beautiful corset too. I'm tempted to have a go myself.  
  I would definitely encourage you to give it a try. I was always a little intimidated by the patent corsets but this was really a great experience and I learned a lot. Since the pieces fit together so beautifully right from the start the resizing has been pretty simple. I would love to see what others can do with this pattern.  
  Ooo, I really like the look of this pattern. As I have crazy hips and bust, I'm wondering how it would fit me. Ack, I don't need a another personal project!  
  Lol! I totally understand! I think this is a pattern that was really designed with the full sized curvy woman in mind. It has all of the support exactly where you need/want it. I am hoping that once I have it sized down it will also give very nice reduction.
