Overbust Corset Pattern -Hope-
Overbust corset pattern -Hope- is a completely free digital pattern for you to play with and explore corsetmaking.
It is a model with 7 pattern pieces per side and an optional suspendable modesty panel.
One of the pattern pieces is a gore as can be seen in the pattern diagram down bellow.
Pattern file itself comes with 3 different version of pattern piece 6 (hip gore). They are all the same but differently arranged through pattern sizes. Pick the one you find the easiest to work with ad ignore the rest.
This pattern has been primarily made for people with narrow torso and large chest (relative to torso size). Naturally, it can be altered to fit smaller breasts.
You can make as many corsets as you like by using this pattern, and sell them, if you wish to do so.
Standard size range is 17“ – 47“ / 44,00cm – 119,00cm, based on the finished corset waist size with a total of 16 sizes.
Bust : 32″ – 62″ / 82,00cm – 157,00cm
Underbust : 22.5″ – 52″/ 57,00cm – 132,00cm
High Hip : 25″ – 54″ / 63,00cm – 138,00cm
Low Hip : 31″ – 60″ / 78,00cm – 153,00cm
Lengths are the same for all sizes with 13.5“ / 34,30cm for center front and 13.4“ / 34,00cm from center back.
Also, all circumference heights are clearly marked on all pattern pieces making it easier for you to adjust & customize the pattern.
Circumference lengths are measured from waist up and waist down:
Bust : 5.9″ / 16,00cm
Underbust : 2.5″ / 6,40cm
High Hip : 2.3″ / 6,00cm
Low Hip : 4.7″ / 12,00cm
Along side a PDF file, containing all the corset pattern pieces for all 16 sizes, there is also an excel size chart with detailed circumference measurements in both metric and imperial values.
There are no seam allowances added nor is there a lacing gap drafted in and the pattern does not include any sewing instructions (That might change in the future.).
As always, it is highly recommended to make a sloper, mock up or a toile before using “good” fabric.
Be warned, this pattern uses a gore so I highly recommend researching the topic of how to sew it.
