I thought I'd try a different style corset this time around, and used Truly Victorian's 1903 Edwardian Corset Pattern
(http://www.trulyvictorian.net/tvxcart/product.php?productid=110&cat=14&page=1)



(The Chemise and Bloomers are Victorian, not Edwardian, which makes the corset look more Victorian style in this photo)



Pink on Cream Spot Broche, single-layer corset, with spring steel stays, finished with bias tape, trimmed with lace.



The 'Pigeon-Breasted' Silhouette is achieved by the corset flaring out from the waistline and not compressing the ribs. Rather padding and lace is inserted into the corset to fill out the gap between you and the corset. I did not like/could not quite figure out how the pads (made to go with the pattern) worked... there were no instructions on using the pads, just constructing them, but I found this handy blog, in which the blogger/seamstress reconstructed a different style of padding to use with her Truly Victorian corset (http://wearinghistoryblog.com/tag/truly-victorian/)

And made my own version...



They sort of make me laugh.

The silhouette looks very Victorian rather than Edwardian. The lace detail is so pretty.
