Victorian undergarment set - costume design and make

Final Photos

This design consists of a chemise, corset and skirt/ petticoat. The concept was not to create a truly period accurate piece but what I would call 'modern re-creation' style garments. Hobbyist costumers and a high number of mainstream media period dramas have created a sort of sub-set of period costume; now with some consistent deviations from period accurate clothing. 

It was quickly decided that a pair of bloomers (or equivalent garment) would not be included in this design; firstly, as it would not be seen underneath the planned skirt and secondly, they appear to be often omitted from modern-recreations.
