Hi folks! Here at Redthreaded we're always striving to improve, and so we are making some changes to a few of our stock corset styles. These changes will be in effect on all new stock purchases going forward. Sale listings may or may not have the updates.
All front-opening busk styles (1860's, 1880's, S-Bend, Titanic styles)
- Will no longer have a busk underlap. This change is more in keeping with construction seen from the time periods.
- Will have a slightly more flexible busk. However, these busks are made of better quality steel, and feel more like the busks in our extant collection.
1860's & 1880's
- beginning immediately, we are now adding a drawstring into the top bust area of both 1860's and 1880's styles! This allows you to fine tune the fit a bit more, and addresses common gapping issues with these styles.
NOTE: we are not updating our commercial patterns with these changes. However, feel free to make the changes yourself if you would like!
