19th Century Sieger Corset

Based on a Swiss riding corset from the late 19th century, the Sieger pattern has been designed with comfort, style and ease in mind. Working well with matching lingerie, this corset is as easy to create as it is to customise. With construction times estimated at as little as a day, the Sieger is cheap to make and can be embellished with brocaded silk and lace trim to really make it a statement piece. Our sample is constructed using black satin, with the front and back panels covered in a fine net of polka-dot devoré felt.

CREATIVE TIPS

Taking the simplistic design techniques of our more modern range of corsets and adding some old-world flair, the Sieger is by far the simplest historic corset pattern in our entire collection. It has been designed using our standard two layer construction technique, the only differentiating element is the metal busk that is placed at the centre front of the garment. An outstanding transitional piece for sewers of any corset-making experience level, there are no additional design features to complicate the construction process - unless you choose to customize the finished garment.

If you have absolutely no prior experience in corset construction, we recommend that you begin with an easier corset pattern - our modern selection focuses more on perfecting the two layer-construction technique than their historical counter-parts. The Laila corset will be a great starting piece for those who wish to branch into corset making.
