(This pattern is in its BETA version)

I’ve created Overbust corset IVY  way back in 2011 to play with a peak-a-boo keyhole design but I’ve never made the finished corset. Earlier this year, I’ve posted a picture of the mockup for this design in one of Instagrams #throwbacktuesday post. Followers loved it and there where many requests for its pattern and here we are.

Since the pattern was never perfected or finished I can’t, in good consciousness, recommend it to unexperienced corsetmakers but feel free to try if you like the challenge!
Also, since Corset pattern IVY is in her BETA version, I would appreciate your feedback and contribution to getting it to its final form.

This pattern has been made with a waist reduction of 10cm or 4″ and it has a 5cm or 2″ lacing gap included.

You can make and sell as many corsets as you like from using this pattern.

Measurements and sizes:

Pattern is originally drafted using Metric values!
Imperial values have been converted and rounded up, making the values in Inches approximations.

Measurement shown in the size charts are values for the finished corset not body measurements!
All circumference heights are clearly marked on all pattern pieces making it easier for you to adjust.

How was the example overbust corset IVY made?

Example corset featured in the picture is a mockup. Proper corset showing the patterns design and fit was never made. This is why this particular corset pattern is in its BETA version though my hope is to change that in time and create its final version.

In the meantime, you are more than welcome to play around with this pattern. I would greatly appreciate your feedback and contribution if you decide to tackle the challenge.
