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.

  Wow curves!!!
Are there photos of the final product without the fun feather? It is kind of hard to see the outlines and seam lines and boning etc with the feather hiding details.

  Hi there! Yes I do have a couple from the front without the Marabou. Unfortunately this section doesn't look like it allows me to put up a standalone image (it wants a web address). I will be putting up something on my Facebook page on Wed if you want to check there and I will make sure I put up the non feather image for you!

  Interesting....

I have a few issues of LMP-- 10 June 1899, 4 February 1899, and 27 May 1899. In the 27 May issue, there's a report of a corset contest from the 8 March Issue. using patterns printed in January and February 1899.

So, this is the pattern I don't have. I don't suppose that 8 March 1899 is in your files?

  Sadly no, I only have this one issue of LMP. I bought it just for the corset pattern.
