This is a modern 12-panel over-bust 'plunge' corset pattern with a beautiful curve to accentuate your waist. Sizes (UK) 8 -20 (US 4 - 16), approx. cup size A-DD/E. Please note that if you are full-busted a plunge corset will not give great support at the top centre front and spillage at this 'plunging' area can be an issue. There are alternative cup size panels to substitute for sizes A, B, D and DD/E. INCLUDES A 25 PAGE DOCUMENT OF CORSET CONSTRUCTION NOTES!
Note – a 2’’ back gap is factored into this pattern. If you would prefer your corset to close at the back, add 1’’ (25.4mm) to the edge of each panel 6.
The corset length measures 38cm at the centre front (from the top of the bust apex) and 42cm at the back.
This pattern is drafted in AutoCAD and available as an instant download - you will need to print out on size letter (A) or A4 paper, making sure 'actual size' and 'centre the print' is ticked in your print dialogue box. Outline instructions included for making up single layer corsets.
It is recommended that you make a toile to the largest of your measurements to check the fit of the pattern – at this stage you can take in the smaller of your measurements, lengthen if need be, and transfer these amendments to your pattern to ensure a perfect fitting corset!
