CORSETED SHIRT/VEST PATTERN! This is a beautiful corseted shirt (or vest if the sleeves are omitted) with a gentle 2'' reduction to accentuate your waist. Currently available in 10 sizes (see photo for sizing information) - this is drafted for a tall height (5'7.5''-5'10.5'') but it is also available in medium and short versions. Includes a 25 page manual of construction notes!
This is an intermediate - advanced level design. The design can be made as 1. a single (or double with outer fashion layer) layer coutil vest, 2. as a stretch shirt plus integrated underbust corset (with sleeves) or 3. as a non-stretch vest with integrated under-bust corset (no sleeves). The under-bust corset can of course be used in its own right - two designs in one! To keep seams less bulky a serger/overlocking stitch is recommended for finishing the top of the inner corset and the vest/shirt seams - this isn't necessary if making design 1. Note – no lacing gap is factored into this pattern.
This pattern is drafted in AutoCAD and available as an instant PDF 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. Instructions included.
