11  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Free corset patterns! on: March 22, 2006 07:00:49 AM
I just found this site and had to share it with you. Smiley I haven't tried any of the patterns yet but I sure will. Some experience in patterns drafting is probably a plus since there is no measurements but they at least work as inspiration otherwise.

Do you think this pattern will hold up for a larger busted woman?

I really don't know. Maybe you should use more boning in the front for more support. It's hard to say since I have no experience of having big breasts Smiley

cantafruit - I've sewn all the layers together at each seam and then stitched through all layers about 9 or 10 mm from the seam so that it makes a channel for the boning. The channel must be wide enough for the boning to go in, but tight enough for it not to move around (did that make sense?)

I put boning at each side of the center front seam and at each side of the side seams, one at every other seam and on each side of the grommets in the back.

Thank you all for the nice comments. I will try to answer everyones questions.  Smiley

First of all here's a place to convert inches to cm http://www.onlineconversion.com/length_common.ht

All fabrics are 100% cotton and I've used 4 layers. I guess 3 would have been enough, but the striped fabric is quite thin, so to make sure the white stripes would really look white I sewed it together with a plain white fabric. I found the striped fabric on a Swedish auction site, so unfortunately this was all I had. I love black and white stripes.

I've used 12 pieces of 6,5mm wide spring steel boning and 4 pieces of 7mm wide spiral steel. All boning is vertical except for the ones at the seam I added, it's more diagonal.

The site only has the pattern, no sewing instructions I'm afraid.  Sad

As for this being a good beginners corset hard to say, but I guess so. It shouldn't be too complicated if you now how to sew   Smiley And putting a zipper in shouldn't be any problem either. Just add enough width for it to close in the back and use a strong zipper, and I think you'll be fine!

I hope I answered everyones questions, otherwise just ask again. I will sit here and enjoy the positive feedback for a while. Grin

How adorable!
 Had I been a few years younger I hadn't hesitate to make one....now I have to consider when I'd bee able to wear one.

Anyway- the horns are lovely and I love anything polkadotted. Great work!

Ewushka, if you're planning to buy a grommet machine, take a look at Sljddetaljer ( http://www.slojddetaljer.se/) They sell it for 570:- less than Rda Trden. I bought one from them recently and I'm so pleased with it. Smiley

I've made this corset with this free pattern http://www.dtta.dk/x/intro_uk.htm (thank you Krinil for posting that link!). I've made a few changes to it though - added an inch all around the bottom edge, made the straps wider and added a seam on the front piece.

So here is the pictures (and No, I wont wear those pants with the corset, it looks awful).
Oh, and please ignore the redness around my nose and my tired eyes, I've got a cold.
