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 thank you! I already moved it though. :(
