PATTERN! Betty - a 16 panel over-bust corset pattern_size 8-24 (UK), 4-20 (US) cup sizes A-E
This is a modern 16-panel over-bust corset pattern with a beautiful curve to accentuate your waist (3'' waist reduction on standard sizes). ALSO INCLUDES A 25 PAGE DOCUMENT OF CORSET CONSTRUCTION NOTES!
Note – a 2'' back gap is factored into this pattern. The corset length measures 37cm (15'') at the front and 37cm or 42cm at the back. There is an option for a low and a high back.
This pattern is incredibly flattering. The rib shaping is hour-glass so it is comfortable for those who cannot tolerate any pressure on the ribs. It is relatively short with a high swoop over the iliac crest and has a lovely sweetheart neckline. There are additional sections for increasing or decreasing the cup size from the standard C cup to an A, B, D, DD, E cup (approx.), and for variable hip and waist to under-bust sections (these sections are attached at the waistlines). See the measurement chart in the photos above. This allows you to get a closer fit before amending your toile.
This pattern is drafted in AutoCAD and downloadable as a pdf file - you will need to print out on size A (letter) or A4 paper, making sure 'actual size' is ticked in your print dialogue box.
A toile must always be made to check the fit of corset patterns – at this stage you can take in the smaller of your measurements and transfer these amendments to your pattern to ensure a perfect fitting corset! You will also be able to test the length of the corset at the toile stage - lengthen or shorten just above the waist.
