I’ve created underbust SONYA as a very beginner friendly short style that can be a perfect step into the corset making world with loads of helping lines and pattern markings that make it very easy to customize and adjust for a perfect fit.
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 by using this pattern.
How was the example Sonya corset made?
Example corset is made from hand dyed red small weave herringbone coutil, using the sandwich method of corset construction. Both layers are made from the same red coutil.
All boning (5mm wide, mixture of spring and spiral) is steel well as the front busk closure.
Edges are finished with black cotton twill tape.
Same tape is used as the waist tape which is hidden between the layers of coutil. Purpose of a waist tape is to add strength to the corset waist line since that is where the majority of force affects the corset.
Modesty panel is made from 3 layers of the same red coutil and is quilted to strength and stability.
Many different types of corset construction can be applied to Underbust corset pattern SONYA, it is purely a question of preference!
