Yes i saw some spectacular antique corsets goes for so high prices!!
You'll be very welcome to order patterns, feel free to ask in private for reduced price for set of your choice.
I will go on this one in october.I get my regular customers job and manage to drafted one pattern every 3 months, it took approx 12 plain hours to draft +control and few more for picturing the corset right side and reverse at 380° on historical mannequin form.
Thank you for the offer of reducing the price. But your hard work and talent are worth full price. Knowing that you take the time to do it right and have a passion for what you do. Makes it all the more valuable.
Yes it was a very lovely antique shape. This corset is patented from 1880 and is a Royal Worcester brand name corset. The style is more close to the hourglass line with curved busk at the bottom to support the belly. S-shape appear in very late 1800's and get plain fashion style in 1900 till 1906 approx depending countries and makers.Most of them got S-seams like this corset:[link]
