Meet the newest Scroop Pattern: the Persis Corset! This fabulous late Edwardian corset features dramatic swooping seam lines and three bust sizes (Small (A-B), Medium (C-D) & Large (DD/E+)) and two waist-to-hip ratio (hip flare) size sets to make it easy to get the perfect fit.
This corset is based on the transitional corsets sold between 1907 and 1911, as the fashionable silhouette moved from the extreme curves of the early Edwardian era to the straighter silhouette of the 1910s. Like most 1900s and 1910s corsets, this corset is made from a single layer of strong fabric. Both views feature dramatic swooping front panel seaming which forms an inverted fan shape, bust and hip gussets, and four garter straps.
I’ve always been wildly envious of costumers who post about historical retreat events that include opportunities to swan about in glamorous undress. Whether it’s 18th century banyans, Victorian tea gowns, or Edwardian wrappers, there’s something so delicious about swanning around in decadent deshabille.
