Cupped Corset Dress Pattern! Vivienne - a 14 panel cupped corset dress in sizes UK10-20 (US 6-16)
This is a modern 14-panel integrated cupped corset dress pattern with approximate cup sizes A - DD/E. It has a beautiful curve to accentuate your waist - a 4'' reduction on standard sizes. Sizes (UK) 10 -20 (US 6 - 16).
The corset length measures 66cm/ 26'' at the centre front and 76cm/30'' at the back. A shorter corset version can be made - two alternative lengths are indicated on the pattern. There is also the option to cut two different underbust (rib) and hip sizes (differing by 1.5''). It is recommended that you make a toile to the under-bust measurement and adjust the hip/ waist from this - with cupped corsets it is imperative that the under-bust fits snugly so that the cups are pulled taught against the sternum (a wire will also help) in the same way as an elastic bra band - the cups will tend to flop if this is not correct. Cut and sew foam will help with cup rigidity (as straps are not included as an option in this pattern).
