This is a gusseted 16-panel over-bust (high-backed) corset pattern. It has only a small cinch to accentuate the waist - this design is all about the bust.
Sizes (UK) 6-28 (US 2 - 24), approx. cup sizes A-F with a combination of under-bust measurements of 26-48''/66-122cm. Bra band sizes normally associated with this are 30-52'' /76-132cm. It is recommended that you make a toile to the under-bust measurement (actual, not bra band) and then adjust the waist, hip and cup size. Three height variations are given (waist to under-bust of 8, 11 & 14cm) and alternative hip sections that cover -/+2''/5cm on the standard sizes. Once you have a pattern that more closely fits your measurements using these variations, you can make your toiles using the nip/tuck or slice/splice technique to finely tune your fit. Although this pattern contains many different cup sizes, the bust is a notoriously difficult area to perfect and some tweaking of the pattern will probably be necessary. Comprehensive instructions are given. The entire pattern is 103 A4/letter pages so please print only the pages you require - these are given on page 7.
INCLUDES A 25 PAGE DOCUMENT OF CORSET CONSTRUCTION NOTES!
Note – a 2’’ back gap is factored into this pattern however an alternative CB line is drawn into the centre back panel for you to follow if you prefer the corset to close.
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.
