As this is a pattern you may need to draft yourself, there are no seam allowances!
You can also find these instructions as a nifty little pdf on my blog.
Attention! Drafting and sewing a corset isn't easy, so I'm assuming you have somewhat solid sewing skills if you decide to tackle this.
Step 1: Pattern notes
I usually wear a european 38, but that doesn’t mean you can just use the same pattern, if you’re a size 38, too. That’s because a corset shouldn’t be made in regular sizes, but from your personal measurements to achieve the perfect fit.
The ones I used for the pattern are:
- Bust: 87cm
- Underbust: 77cm
- Waist: 65cm
- Hip: 90cm
So, if you have the exact same measurements (or VERY close to them), feel free to use the pattern as it is. If you don’t, however, you can still use my pattern as a guideline when drafting your own. I’ll be giving directions for the drafting part as well.
