Corset Pattern! Clara - a 22-panelled demi-bust with integral hip fins - sizes UK 8-22 (US 4-18) - intermediate/advanced level
PATTERN! This is a 22-panelled demi-bust (including hip gusset horizontal panels) pattern with a beautiful curve and integral hip fins to accentuate your waist. Sizes (UK) 8 -22 (US 4 - 18). Standard pattern cup size C. There is a 25 page construction manual included and notes specific to this pattern that explain how to adjust for fit at the bust, under-bust and hip. The pattern is categorised as intermediate/advanced due to the increased difficulty of amending the hip size across the horizontal hip gusset panels.
Note – no lacing gap is factored into this pattern.
The corset length measures 40cm (16'') at the centre front and 38cm (15'') at the centre back. There is a reduction of 3'' at the waist applied to the standard sizes (see photo for measurements).
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.
It is recommended that you make a toile to check the fit of the pattern – at this stage you can nip & tuck or slash & spread, lengthen or shorten if need be, and transfer these amendments to your pattern to ensure a perfect fitting corset.
