This is a great tutorial - I'll have to give it a go now. I had problems since I'm not as busty as most corsetted ladies and needed a little more flexibility on where to tighten. this'll come in handy :D

Thank you :hug:
I see so many 'correct' ways to lace a corset that shows the 'x' method. This is so much more nicer and I have been lacing like this for the last 12 years. I even own an original Edwardian corset complete with it's original lacing laced in this manner.

thank you! :hug:

an original Edwardian corset??? *faints* I wish i have one of those... all I have a couple of short combinations.

you're welcome :hug:

I was very lucky - it os not in very good condition and was badly advertised on eBay so I got a bargain. One day I hope to make a copy. I'll post pics on here when I do.

The loops in the middle are correct, but most corsetiers I've talked with say that the corset should be x-laced, and not v-laced. That way the two edges of the corset can come together and close completely (if necessary), without the cording getting inbetween.
Janes-Wardrobe's avatar
Ah, but I prefer this method and I have been making corsets for 12 years. This method allows the corset edges to come together without any posibility of overlap which you can get with 'X' lacing. Personally I find this much more attractive and I bout an original Edwardisn corset that was laced in exactly this fashion.
eqos's avatar
I see! I have had problems with the corset edges overlapping on a few I've made, and I hadn't thought of that. It seems that even in period the corset lacing was more of a personal preference than I previously had thought.
Janes-Wardrobe's avatar
And in some periods different lacing styles had other connertations ;) Probably read differently in different towns and cities - if you get my meaning ;)

I love it when that happens with period clothing, it lets you do what you want. :D
