I created this pattern after sewing an 18th century stays. I wanted to add an accessory coordinated in the style of the era. So I added tassets at the bottom, and I imitated the boning schema. This pattern is very easy to cut and sew. However, I recommend you make a draft in inexpensive fabric before cutting your pretty fabric. This will allow you to adjust the corset perfectly to the shape of your neck ... Some Details: ------------- -this pattern comes in PDF format accompanied by an instruction sheet clearly illustrated.
