    Oh gosh I totally forget! Just did a search and couldn’t find the right one either – my mom got them for me as a gift, I will have to ask her for you!

    I drafted it, but if you have a sloper you could easily do one too – oversized t-shirt shape with neckline pleats :) Thanks so much!

    Hand drafted, but would be easy to do – oversized t-shirt shape with neckline pleats :) And thanks!

    I drafted one for an oversize t-shirt shape with neckline pleats. A very easy pattern to make, if you wanna give it a try!

    Thank you! It’s a bit itchy actually, because of the metallic threads.

    I used the contour bust pattern as a base for the top :)

    rachelily commented on the project Corset - Pale

    Oops so sorry for the late reply! The best advice I can give you is to make a muslin, and make sure it fits perfectly. No matter how well-made the corset is in the end, if the fit isn’t right, no…
