Corset Pattern! Lizzy - a Titanic-era long-line under-bust corset/skirt pattern (size UK 8-20, US 4-16)
This is a gorgeous under-bust long-line corset or skirt (two options) pattern based on the Elizabeth Hume 1917 patent. Size UK 8 - 20 (US 4 - 16). See measurement table below for sizes.
Note – there is no lacing gap factored into this pattern - it is designed to close at the back. There are two centre back options - one based on the original angled edge according to the patent, and one with a more modern vertical edge. An angled centre back is good for 'sway backs' - the flat steels can be gently curved to fit the angled boning channels.
This pattern is drafted in AutoCAD and downloadable as a pdf file from etsy - you will need to print out on Size A (letter) or A4 paper, making sure 'actual size' is ticked in your print dialogue box. ALSO INCLUDES A 25 PAGE CORSET CONSTRUCTION MANUAL!!

I would recommend making up the largest size (e.g if your underbust is a 12 and your hips are a 14, make up a size 14). 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 master 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 waistline.
Please note that the bust addition shown in the photo does not form part of this pattern - this is an embellishment for illustration purposes only. This pattern forms part of the four featured in my Corset Collection E-book.
