      Subject: [SCA Newcomers] Corset Pattern


      Okay everyone, I promised you the instructions and the materials
      list needed to construct a corset. This corset is strapless and as
      Mistress Isolde told us, was made with a woman's curves in mind and
      will fit everyone.

      You'll need
      2 packages of 1/4" grommets
      2" twill tape
      2 packages of 1" bias tape in the color of your fashion fabric
      1 1/2 yards or 2yards of non fusible interfacing
      1 1/2 yards or 2 of fashion fabric, make sure it has a high thread
      count
      1 1/2 yards or 2 of Muslin, Cotton, or any other natural fabric for
      lining material
      1 yard of craft weight pellon
      thread
      chalk for marking pattern
      newspaper or brown paper bag
      bones we used steel boning.

      1) Measure your bust, waist , hips, and torso. To measure your
      torso you should measure from the top of your collar bone to your
      hip joint.
      2) With a yard stick, mark your torso measurement on part of the
      paper. Then start marking your other measurements opposite of your
      first torso measure. Starting at your bust measurement start
      connecting the dots marking your natural curve, and hip. At the top
      of the pattern make a french curve, for the top of your corset,
      making a slight dip under where the arm will be for comfort. Do the
      same for the bottom of the corset making sure that the highest point
      of your corset pattern is going to be at your hip, this is so you
      can sit and walk comfortably. Cut out the pattern, don't worry you
      only need the one peice, when you start cutting your fabric and
      stuff you'll end up with four pieces of each fabric..
      3) Start cutting out your fabrics. You want four of the fashion
      fabric, four of the lining, and four of the interfacing. Mark which
      way the pattern goes so you don't forget which way is up or down.
      4) Sew the front and backs of your fashion fabric together, and
      then the lining fabric together.
      5) Cut the heavyweight pellon about 3" wide and as long as the
      front and back edge of your corset. That would be the side with the
      straight edge.
      6) Bast stitch the Heavyweight pellon to the four straight edges of
      your corset, then baste stitch the interfacing on top of that. Find
      and mark where your natual waist is and baste stitch the 2" twill
      tape inside the corset.
      7) With chalk or bits of soap mark where the casings for your bones
      will be on the outside of your fashion fabric. The straight edges
      should be about 1/2 inch to accomodate for 1/4" wide bones and
      casings, the bones on the front will be doubled one on top of the
      other, there should be about a 1 1/4" space where the grommets will
      go before you mark for the other set of 1/4" bones. For the body of
      the corset, you want to make the casings about 1" to accomodate 1/2"
      inch bones and casings. After each bone you want to keep that 1
      1/4" space.
      8) Pin the lining to the right side of the fashion fabric and
      stitch together at the straight edges, at this point it should look
      like a pillow case. After the edges are stitched, flip the corset
      inside out, it should look the fashion fabric should be in the front
      and the lining should be over the twill tape and interfacing. Start
      sewing down the lines you drew for your bones.
      9) If using steel bones, snip them to your length, round out the
      edges, and dip into this rubbery tool dip stuff you can get it in
      the hardware section at most stores. With the rest of your
      heavyweight pellon make bone casings, and start putting the bones in
      your corset, use the bias tape to trim the tops and bottoms of your
      garment. Then add the grommets spacing them about 1" apart on your
      corset peices, you may need more than 2 packages of grommets. You
      can use whatever you want for the laces, one suggestion is boot
      laces they're sturdy. You should have 15 bones for each pair of
      bodies, this corset laces in the back as well as the front so that
      it can be adjusted to your body and all the fun feminine changes it
      goes through.
      I hope this helps, as soon as I can I'll post pictures of each step
      so you can see the process.

      Kristen

                Okay everyone, I promised you the instructions and the materials list needed to construct a corset. This corset is strapless and as Mistress Isolde told us, was made with a woman's curves in mind and will fit everyone.You' ll need 2 packages of 1/4" grommets2" twill tape2 packages of 1" bias tape in the color of your fashion fabric1 1/2 yards or 2yards of non fusible interfacing1 1/2 yards or 2 of fashion fabric, make sure it has a high thread count1 1/2 yards or 2 of Muslin, Cotton, or any other natural fabric for lining material1 yard of craft weight pellonthreadchalk for marking patternnewspaper or brown paper bagbones we used steel boning.1) Measure your bust, waist , hips, and torso. To measure your torso you should measure from the top of your collar bone to your hip joint.2) With a yard stick, mark your torso measurement on part of the paper. Then start marking your other measurements opposite of your first torso measure. Starting at your bust

                measurement start connecting the dots marking your natural curve, and hip. At the top of the pattern make a french curve, for the top of your corset, making a slight dip under where the arm will be for comfort. Do the same for the bottom of the corset making sure that the highest point of your corset pattern is going to be at your hip, this is so you can sit and walk comfortably. Cut out the pattern, don't worry you only need the one peice, when you start cutting your fabric and stuff you'll end up with four pieces of each fabric.3) Start cutting out your fabrics. You want four of the fashion fabric, four of the lining, and four of the interfacing. Mark which way the pattern goes so you don't forget which way is up or down.4) Sew the front and backs of your fashion fabric together, and then the lining fabric together.5) Cut the heavyweight pellon about 3" wide and as long as the front and back edge of your corset. That would be the side with the

                straight edge.6) Bast stitch the Heavyweight pellon to the four straight edges of your corset, then baste stitch the interfacing on top of that. Find and mark where your natual waist is and baste stitch the 2" twill tape inside the corset.7) With chalk or bits of soap mark where the casings for your bones will be on the outside of your fashion fabric. The straight edges should be about 1/2 inch to accomodate for 1/4" wide bones and casings, the bones on the front will be doubled one on top of the other, there should be about a 1 1/4" space where the grommets will go before you mark for the other set of 1/4" bones. For the body of the corset, you want to make the casings about 1" to accomodate 1/2" inch bones and casings. After each bone you want to keep that 1 1/4" space.8) Pin the lining to the right side of the fashion fabric and stitch together at the straight edges, at this point it should look like a pillow case. After the edges are stitched, flip

                the corset inside out, it should look the fashion fabric should be in the front and the lining should be over the twill tape and interfacing. Start sewing down the lines you drew for your bones.9) If using steel bones, snip them to your length, round out the edges, and dip into this rubbery tool dip stuff you can get it in the hardware section at most stores.

                      Hi everyone I made a mistake in telling you how to get your
                      measurements. You need to measure your bust, waist, hips, your bust
                      to waist measurement ( that's the top of your bust to your natural
                      waist about 2 inches above your belly button), and your waist to hip
                      measurement ( right at the hip joint). Divide your bust, waist and,
                      hip measurements by 4, and start making your paper pattern.

                      Sorry everyone

                      Corset Pattern
                      >
                      > Okay everyone, I promised you the instructions and the materials
                      list needed to construct a corset. This corset is strapless and as
                      Mistress Isolde told us, was made with a woman's curves in mind and
                      will fit everyone.You' ll need 2 packages of 1/4" grommets2" twill
                      tape2 packages of 1" bias tape in the color of your fashion fabric1
                      1/2 yards or 2yards of non fusible interfacing1 1/2 yards or 2 of
                      fashion fabric, make sure it has a high thread count1 1/2 yards or 2
                      of Muslin, Cotton, or any other natural fabric for lining material1
                      yard of craft weight pellonthreadchalk for marking patternnewspaper or
                      brown paper bagbones we used steel boning.1) Measure your bust, waist
                      , hips, and torso. To measure your torso you should measure from the
                      top of your collar bone to your hip joint.2) With a yard stick, mark
                      your torso measurement on part of the paper. Then start marking your
                      other measurements opposite of your first torso measure. Starting at
                      your bust
                      >
                      > measurement start connecting the dots marking your natural curve,
                      and hip. At the top of the pattern make a french curve, for the top of
                      your corset, making a slight dip under where the arm will be for
                      comfort. Do the same for the bottom of the corset making sure that the
                      highest point of your corset pattern is going to be at your hip, this
                      is so you can sit and walk comfortably. Cut out the pattern, don't
                      worry you only need the one peice, when you start cutting your fabric
                      and stuff you'll end up with four pieces of each fabric.3) Start
                      cutting out your fabrics. You want four of the fashion fabric, four of
                      the lining, and four of the interfacing. Mark which way the pattern
                      goes so you don't forget which way is up or down..4) Sew the front and
                      backs of your fashion fabric together, and then the lining fabric
                      together.5) Cut the heavyweight pellon about 3" wide and as long as
                      the front and back edge of your corset. That would be the side with the
                      >
                      > straight edge.6) Bast stitch the Heavyweight pellon to the four
                      straight edges of your corset, then baste stitch the interfacing on
                      top of that. Find and mark where your natual waist is and baste stitch
                      the 2" twill tape inside the corset.7) With chalk or bits of soap mark
                      where the casings for your bones will be on the outside of your
                      fashion fabric. The straight edges should be about 1/2 inch to
                      accomodate for 1/4" wide bones and casings, the bones on the front
                      will be doubled one on top of the other, there should be about a 1
                      1/4" space where the grommets will go before you mark for the other
                      set of 1/4" bones. For the body of the corset, you want to make the
                      casings about 1" to accomodate 1/2" inch bones and casings. After each
                      bone you want to keep that 1 1/4" space.8) Pin the lining to the right
                      side of the fashion fabric and stitch together at the straight edges,
                      at this point it should look like a pillow case. After the edges are
                      stitched, flip
                      >
                      > the corset inside out, it should look the fashion fabric should be
                      in the front and the lining should be over the twill tape and
                      interfacing. Start sewing down the lines you drew for your bones.9) If
                      using steel bones, snip them to your length, round out the edges, and
                      dip into this rubbery tool dip stuff you can get it in the hardware
                      section at most stores. With the rest of your heavyweight pellon make
                      bone casings, and start putting the bones in your corset, use the bias
                      tape to trim the tops and bottoms of your garment. Then add the
                      grommets spacing them about 1" apart on your corset peices, you may
                      need more than 2 packages of grommets. You can use whatever you want
                      for the laces, one suggestion is boot laces they're sturdy. You should
                      have 15 bones for each pair of bodies, this corset laces in the back
                      as well as the front so that it can be adjusted to your body and all
                      the fun feminine changes it goes through.I hope this helps, as soon as
                      I can
