Civil War Formal Corset Busk Grommet Reenactor Handmade For Sale

Civil War Formal Corset Busk Grommet Reenactor Handmade


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.

Extra Boning

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.

Shipment

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.

General Instructions

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.

Myclients and the quality ofmy products are very important to me. I welcome allcorrespondence from my customers.

ORDERING INSTRUCTIONS

  • Please provide your waist, bust, and hip measurements in inches by sending us an email after placing your order.
  • The bust measurement, taken at the fullest part, can be taken while wearing a bra.
  • Do not send your bra size, as these measurements can vary with manufacturers and may result in an improper fit.
  • Also feel free to include any additional information that you feel may be helpful.
  • Please send us your information by using the contact seller button or email us at heathertreadle(at)aol.com

QUESTIONS

Since a corset is something most people are not familiar with purchasing, we encourage correspondence. We will happily answer all your questions and do our best to assure a great fit.

You can also see our expanded line of corsets on Etsy. Use the search term "working corsets". We use the same sewing machine logo and store name of "Treadle Treasures". Thank you and have a great day.









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.
