Civil War Lined Working Corset For Reenactor Handmade For Sale

Civil War Era Lined Ladies Corset

These working corsets are our best selling items. Our clients have been very pleased with the quality and workmanship. Check out our response to see their compliments. I've developed a durable, yet wearable design that will achieve the period correct look.

It is made of two layers of heavy, pre-washed cotton fabric. The seams in the outer layer have been felled for increased strength. It laces up the back using durable lacing tape. The two ties meet at the waist. It has 8 flexible metal bones sewn into the corset between the layers. The materials I use provide enough strength to assure the proper shape and support while still allowing some degree of mobility. I have worn my unlined corset while sewing at craft shows and re-enactments for several years and I am very pleased with the way it has held up.

Hook and eye tape is used as the front closure. This method of closing the corset is equal in strength to busk, but allows more flexibility and provides a more economical product.

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 $5 charge per set of two extra bones.

Shipment

Each 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.

About Me: I started creating reproduction Civil War items several years ago. My clients appreciate the quality of my work, attention to detail, and authenticity. I have sewn for re-enactors, museums, theaters, a film producer, and many clients just like you. I started the business several years ago and have become an attraction at local craft shows as I sew on my antique treadle sewing machine, dressed in period clothing. My husband and I have decided to expand our clientele by offering my items through this site. We believe you will appreciate the high quality products, the fair prices, and the quick service.

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.
