Corsets

Renaissance-Elizabethan

Three corsets were made for Man of La Mancha.  Each one was a design element on its own and two were also meant to give the period silhouette under other garments.  Instead of being made with boning, Peltex was utilized as the main body of the corset.  The corset was cut out in one piece, encased in it's decorative fabrics, and fused to the inside.  Boning was used on the center backs to stabilize the lacing of the corset through the brass grommets.

18th Century

Two corsets were made for Wuthering Heights, along with three other boned bodices.  These corsets were made in a traditional style utilizing period patterns.  They were made from coutil and boned vertically, with boning running across the center front horizontally to produce the conical shape of the period.

Crinoline

This 1860s pregnancy corset was built for Shenandoah.  It was build from coutil and fully boned.  The actress was laced into the corset over a pregnacy pad.

Fin de Siecle (Turn of the Century)

Four corsets were built for The Importance of Being Earnest.  They were built from coutil and fully boned.  Each one had a separating stomacher to maintain the period style.
