Description

As far as I know, no other corset patterns on the market include contemporary bra sizes.

This corset is based on a historic pattern from the 1880s, and the engineering of it astounds me. I've converted the historic bust to a contemporary silhouette and I explain how to fit different bra sizes. As far as I know, no other corset pattern on the market is calibrated to contemporary bra sizes. It took me about a year and fitting a dozen or so models to figure it out. :)

The e-book is a complete corset making tutorial, and includes everything a novice corsetmaker could need to know in order to feel confident tailoring and making this pattern.

This listing is for the PDF pattern and 40 pages of PDF instructions. You will not need any other corset making instructions or hints, every step is shown with detailed pictures (more than 100 pictures). Typically a novice corsetmaker would need to invest in a historic pattern ($5-15), a corset making book ($20), and sewing several mock up corsets to alter the historic pattern to fit her contemporary dimensions. The most recent historic pattern that I adapted, for instance, took 19 hours of patterning and mock ups before could size it accurately. Save yourself that time! I've done the research and compiled everything into one place here.

Past reviews have included: "There is really no reason to buy a book on corset making when there is such a detailed and beautiful pattern available!"

"I have got to say that I am EXTREMELY impressed and satisfied with how simple they have made this. The only things I've sewn in my life were easy, so this was a scary project to take on, and I'm not done yet, but the instructions that come with these files are like no other. There is no one else out there that sells such easy to understand step-by-step instructions that match the pattern. I'm very excited to continue this project and thankful how easy it was made for me!!"

As far as I know, no other corset patterns on the market include contemporary bra sizes.

Four bra cup sizes are also included, from 30C-30F / 32B-32DDD/E / 34A-34DD.

The pattern is drafted to fit:

BRA SIZES: 30C-30F 32B-32DDD/E / 34A-34DD
under bust 28.75-32.5” or 73-81.3 cm
full bust 30.75”-37.5” or - 78-95 cm
waist 22.5-28” or 57.2-71 cm
hipline 32.75-38.5” or 83.2-88 cm

This is an over bust pattern, but includes instructions for how to trim to the under bust height.

The pattern includes a slight cinch at the waist. The instructions include how to alter the amount of cinch, bra size or hip size.

I include instructions for how to very precisely alter the pattern to fit your measurements, size conversion charts for Euro, UK women's sizing, an explanation of how to fit incorporate your bra sizes into fitting a corset, and all the goodies to make tailoring this pattern (or any other!) to your size easy.

The PDF document is standard size 8.5 x 11" pages for easy printing. The pattern pages and instructions are separate documents. Each pattern piece spans 2 pages, you will have to tape them together, but it's easy to match up the pieces due to the placement of the pattern notes in overlapping areas. I include scales on each pattern piece so you can check that it printed to the right size before you cut into your fabric.

For this corset I recommend a combination of spiral and straight steel bones. I include materials sourcing information. This waist cincher corset nips in the waist slightly at the sides.

Returns and exchange details
I've finished the transition from a full time custom fit to a very part time ready made shop.

Ready made shoes can be returned/exchanged as long as they are in new condition and do not show any wear. Custom shoes in standard sizes or easily resold sizes are also returnable. Custom fit shoes (different sized feet, extraordinarily wide or narrow) require careful measuring, and are difficult for me to resell in the event of a measuring error.
