How to remove hip wrinkles?

Due to the characteristic extreme side seam curve on (mostly) modern corset patterns, directional wrinkles in the fabric have a tendency to show up.

While most wrinkling can be solved by adding more boning, there is the option of manipulating the pattern piece to minimize the pull on the fabric on the problematic pattern piece itself. This specific method is covered in the following tutorial.

Still, if you don’t like these options or are interested in simply learning more, check out how to get rid of wrinkles by drafting gore or gusset pattern pieces.
