Civil War Working Corset For Reenactor Handmade In Usa For Sale

Civil War Working Corset For Reenactor  Handmade In Usa

Civil War Era 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 heavy pre-washed cotton fabric. It laces up the back using durable lacing tape. The two ties meet at the waist. It has 8 flexible metal bones sewn into pockets made of bias tape. The top and bottom of the corsets are bound with bias tape. The materials I use provide enough strength to assure the proper shape and support while still allowing some degree of mobility. I have worn mine 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.


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.



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.
