Civil War Formal Corset Busk Grommet Reenactor Handmade For Sale
Civil War Era Formal Ladies Corset with Busk and Grommets
We are now pleased to
offer these Civil War Era Formal Corsets. Our working corsets are our
best selling items. Our clients have beenvery pleased withthe
quality and workmanship. Check out our response to see their
compliments. These formal corsets will look and feel more period correct
than our working corsets although will not provide the comfort and freedom of
movement that have made my working corsets so popular.
This custom made corset
is constructed of two layers of heavy, pre-washed cotton fabric. The
seams in the outer layer have been felled for increased strength. It
closes in the front with a 12 inch busk closure. It laces up the back
through 30 grommets, 15 per side. The two ties meet at the waist.
It has 16 flat metal bones sewn into the corset between the layers. Manyladies
like to personalize their corset by adding lace or trim.
These corsets have an
overall length in the center front of approximately 14 inches, 10 inches at the
side, and 12 inches in the back. They can be made with up to a 44 inch
waist for the listed price. I recommend extra boning if the waist
measurement exceeds 44 inches.
If your bra cup size is
larger than a "D", I recommend extra boning. I also recommend extra
boning if the waist measurement exceeds 44 inches. If you wish to have extra
boning, please contact us prior to making payment. We will send you a
modified invoice through . There is an additional $6 charge per set
of four extra bones.
Each formal corset will
be custom made for you. Please allow approximately one week from your
order date for me to complete your corset. You will receive an email with
the delivery confirmation number when the corset is ready to ship. Your
corset will be shipped to you using Priority Mail.
The corsets are machine washable.
I recommend line drying.
These corsets are not
intended to drastically reduce your waist size. The corset is made to
take the strain, but your body is not. For health reasons, I do not
recommend taking more than four inches off of your waist size.
I include lacing
instructions with each corset. This provides you with details on how to
properly put on and wear your new corset. The instructions are printed on
a bright orange slip of paper attached to your packing slip.

I personally make all of the products I sell, right here in America. I
try to purchase my supplies from American companies as well. Most of
the items created at Treadle Treasures are done on a 1914 White Rotary
and an 1889 Singer treadle sewing machine. Minimal sewing is done on a
modern electric machine. My collection of treadle sewing machines is on
display in our home.
