Description

I love making corsets. I made this one for fun, just to sell (even thought the fabric is STUNNING and I covet it). It’s scrap fabric from my old job. Something like $250 a yard. It seemed a sin to use it for anything less fabulous than an hourglass corset.

I used the Laughing Moon victorian corset pattern. This is my favorite corset pattern ever. I’ve thought about making my own, but then I remember that Laughing Moon has already made the Best Corset Pattern Ever, so mine would be redundant.

    I’m about to make a Laughing Moon myself, and was wondering your opinion as to whether a rather lean-busted woman should start with the gored or ungored version? I’m sure I’ll make both eventually, but starting with the more flattering versin can’t hurt…

      I think that the gored style is a more attractive style in general- it has better balance. The Dore is short below the waist. It’s really more of an 1860s style.

      But as for your question- gores add curves to a corset. Without them, the shape is smoother. I’d use gores. My experience with the silverado pattern is that it is necessary to use one size bigger in the cup gore (I was a B, but had to use a C cup to avoid being flattened) and one size smaller in the waist, because it stretches slightly in wear.

    Oh, this is so beautiful… I clicked on your etsy link just to check it out, and miserably I find that it’s in my size. Sigh, the torment! I’m sure it will make someone very happy
