Jacci Jaye's Corset Pattern

Added Feb 14, 2011

Step 1 Tools


This tutorial will walk you through how to construct a basic Corset or Waist Cincher. Once you get these basic steps down, you can elaborate on your details and pattern making. I will be using my basic 4 pc. waist cincher pattern, but these same rules apply no matter what corset pattern you decide to use.

Decorative outer/fashion fabric: You can use any durable, non-stretch woven fabric like cotton, silk, twill or linen.

Lining: Coutil (also spelled Coutille) is a woven cloth created specifically for making corsets— but any woven like cotton or cotton blend works as well; such as canvas, duck, or twill.

Busk (also spelled busque): The rigid element of a corset placed at the center front and also serves as a closure. 1 pair.

Boning: The corset pictured here has 20 spiral steel bones, you will need 2 bones / seam, as well as 4 for the back panel and 2 for the front.

Heavy-weight fusible interfacing, all-purpose thread, corset lacing, grommets, grosgrain ribbon or twill tape.

    I had that problem too, but I was able to download it from a different link. Do you see the three links in gray, above these comments, underneath the 17 tutorial pictures? Mine says Remove from favorites, Print, and the third link is for the pattern download. That link works.

    I was unable to download the pattern as well. I kept getting the message—"The change you wanted was rejected.

    Maybe you tried to change something you didn’t have access to." At first I forgot to log in and thought maybe that was the problem, but it happened again even after I logged in, so I hope someone will fix this ASAP.

      Hi rebeccaw54,
      Not sure why this is happening! Try clicking the “download the pdf” link below the main image rather than the “Get it now” button on the right column. That one worked for me! In the meantime, we will look into why its doing this!

    Couldn’t get the pattern or the instructions. Website error 422 Can you provide a new link and instructions? What size corset is this?

    But wait, don’t you have it in larger sizes? Willing to pay for it…
