Basic Skills Necessary:

  • use Your sewing machine

Pattern Description:

Corsets look lovely, but are a pain to wear. This bustier looks like a corset, acts like a corset, but is fully machine washable and very comfortable to wear. It is boned with sewable rigilene tape, and the cross-boned front is designed to enchance the bust. The bustier can be made classic and chic, and embellished in DeathRock-style. It is fully lined, and has a modesty flap. The bustier is closed with a lacing in the back.

The download includes a pdf-pattern for the bustier in three sizes, and a fully illustrated tutorial on how to sew and bone the bustier. The only thing it doesn't include is instructions on how to put in eyelets.

The sizing of the bustier is a bit unconventional, so please make sure the measurements are close to Yours!
