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 had a fantastic group of testers for the Scroop Rilla Corset, and they all made amazing corsets. With every Scroop Patterns I select testers from all over the world, to make sure that the instructions are universally clear and comprehensive, but I always try to have at least one local tester, so I can see their resulting garment in person. With the Rilla that was particularly fun, as Madame O was one of my local testers, and she embellished her test corset with her fabulous embroidery (remember the embroidered buttons she made for this wedding dress?). And she’s let me photograph and share it! This is a test version of the Rilla Pattern, so doesn’t look exactly like the finished pattern does (the main differences are the shape of the front cut out), and Madame O tried single boning construction to see how it would work (answer: not nearly as well as double, so stick to the pattern!).
