I’m in over my head! But how else can I hope to learn? It’s a good thing I already have a little practice at this, because this pattern surely has no mercy for the inexperienced. The pattern is the 1903 Edwardian Corset from Truly Victorian. I’ve had the materials for a while but I was too nervous to get started, to commit to cutting pieces out. No going back now! I bought a very sensible cotton twill for the bulk of the corset, but after all this effort I feel I must embellish it with all the ribbons, bows and lace I can afford.
