Mid-Victorian Corset Covers Pattern

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A corset cover is typically worn under sheer summer styles, to keep the corset from
showing through the dress. They can also double as a chemisette, peaking out from under a
bodice. Plain versions are meant to hide. But you can also find decorative versions. Usually,
they are made of white muslin, but they can also be made of a colored silk for under dark dresses.

View A is a popular style of corset cover see in the 1860s and 1870s. It is wide on the
shoulder, with a moderate low front and back. The original had many rows of lace/ribbon along
the front piece, that would show under low V-Front bodices. This view works best with a lace
beading with ribbon, to help fit the neckline.
