Elizabethan underpinnings M by ladyrose04 Elizabethan underpinnings M by ladyrose04
Finally something to show for the upcoming season!

This is the first of a set of underpinnings for a pair of sisters in the court at the Bristol Renaissance Faire. This set happens to belong to morikfan93.

The corset is made from a double layer of white herringbone coutil with, untabbed and bound in tan bias tape. It is made from 1/2" spring steel, with two pieces of boning in the center two channels to mimic a busk. It is a two piece pattern with an open side seam for adjustability. The straps also tie in for ease of adjustment. The corset is machine sewn with channels and machine floral embroidery in magenta thread.

The farthingale is made from heavy tan cotton twill with plastic covered wire and a knife pleated ruffle at the bottom. The bottom circumfrence is approximately 103". The boning channels and bias binding on the corset are hand made bias tape from the same tan twill. It is a time consuming process, but well worth it! I also made the bum roll in the picture at an earlier date. It is brown twill with blue gros grain ties.

The joke being the underpinnings are "color coded" so their mother knows whose items are whose if she happens to find them on the floor. :)

Beautifully crafted, You did a wonderful job. Your boning work is wonderful and your seaming is very clean, any royal would have been clamoring to have you as her handmaiden :).

Well I'm glad you do. Stuff seems to be coming together nicely and I think we will be able to have everything ready to go for Janesville.
