This is an amazing pattern based on a vintage lingerie set from a 1950's French magazine. The corset has optional boning at the waist, and back closure options with eyelet or hook and eye. The garter clips are also optional. This would make a great addition to any French frou frou lingerie drawer. ------You can find over 100 vintage inspired and reproduction patterns and e-books at MrsDepew.com.--------------------- This pattern is part of the Ooh La la Pin-up Sew-along on A Few Threads Loose.
