It isn't my area of study at all so I have a question. Doesn't the length make it hard to sit down or didn't genteel ladies of the time do something as silly as sit.
The boning stops at the hips, so it isn't a problem at all. The bottom is just fabric, so it is no more difficult to sit in that a tight skirt. This one isn't as long as some 1910's examples though. The question for those isn't sitting so much - it's going to the bathroom. I have no idea how they gracefully managed that one!
Maybe you can push it up a little and then be very careful? My rago girdle is almost that long and that's what I do when I wear it./Eva
I just finished making one of these! Yours has a lovely shape. Did you use an existing pattern or did you make your own? Either way it will be perfect for your suffragette dress.
Jo - I drafted a pattern from a real 1910's corset. I'll be making the pattern and instructions available in an article eventually. What pattern did you use? I tried two other 1910's corsets in previous years, but those failed miserably. I'm so happy I finally found one that worked!
I would not say that it was difficult for me to write term papers at the university, but I tried, because my grade depends on writing, and then I found this site https://collegeessay.net/college-assignment-help, which I am very happy about, because it is a reliable service for writing term papers
