Olivia - oval 'stealthing' under-bust digital pattern
A 14 panelled under-bust pattern good for 'stealthing' under clothes
This is an 14-panelled under-bust pattern with an unusual oval shaping to the front. There is a small tear-shaped panel to the side that can be made from mesh for a 'peekaboo' effect. In the sample (see photos) I used double layered bobbinet to provide a focus. There is a side hip gusset and the front is flat allowing for great stealthing under clothes. Intermediate sewing skills required.
Includes 25 page manual of construction notes!
Note – no lacing gap is factored into this pattern - the measurements given in the photo are exact. The pattern features my unique top and tails optional size variations to get you a bit closer to your measurements before embarking on your first toile - +/1'' for the under-bust and hip are marked on the pattern, and alternative sections are given for a +2'' hip.
There are also two height variations - a standard size and shorter version (2cm shorter). Standard heights at centre front: Size 6 = 27cm, 8 = 27.5cm, 10 = 28cm, 12 = 28.5, 14 -18 = 29cm, 20-26 = 29.5cm. Vertical height options for the standard height are 28 or 30cm, and 2cm shorter for the short version.
This pattern is drafted in AutoCAD and available as an instant 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.
It is recommended that you make a toile to the largest of your measurements to check the fit of the pattern – at this stage you can take in the smaller of your measurements, lengthen or shorten if need be, and transfer these amendments to your pattern to ensure a perfect fitting corset!
