It's Official: I've started a new project!
I've wanted to make two new corsets for awhile and now I'm finally starting! I'd like a new coutil corset based off of my Beth Miller corset (she's my hero!), and also a silk 1860s corset. So, I thought I'd do a little more research on Silk Corsets of the 1860s.
The Blue Ribbed Silk Corset above is from approximately 1851-1860. Isn't the color stunning? I still have to determine the color I want to make mine, but this blue sure is pretty!
Here are a few more Inspiring Research Links for 1860 Corsets:

Have you seen any other links with 1860s Silk Corset pictures or research?
Update: Well, after a hard day's work at revamping my corset pattern I was able to cut out the coutil for my two corsets tonight! And, I ordered some royal blue silk on Etsy for the silk corset! I'm so glad to have another Civil War era project underway.
