Measurements and sizes:
Pattern is originally drafted using Metric values!
Imperial values have been converted and rounded up, making the values in Inches approximations.
All circumference heights are clearly marked on all pattern pieces making it easier for you to adjust.
Check out my pattern adjustment/grading tutorials HERE for more info on how to alter these patterns for a better fit.
There are no seam allowances added nor does the pattern include any sewing instructions.
You don’t have to but it is highly recommend that you add additional bones (and more if needed) for larger sizes. More boning produces a better distribution of force. Better distribution of force makes the corset smoother and more comfortable because bones prevent fabric from bunching up on the waist line.
Sew a boned sloper, mock up or a toile before using “good” fabric to test the patterns size and fit.

How was the example Overbust corset ERIN made?
Example corset made from corset pattern Erin is made using the single layer construction with internal boning channels.
Strength layer is made from black and white small weave herringbone coutil. Boning channels are sewn on black boning channel tape sold by length. Corset edges and the waist tape are both made using black cotton twill tape.
Boning is a combination of 7mm spiral steel and 5mm flat steel (for back lacing). Front busk used is regular narrow steel busk in silver.
Back laces are made from black cotton flat tubular laces (sold as corset laces in many shops). Two part silver grommets are used for back lacing.
