This is my first corset ever. I wasn´t able to find a perfect pattern for me so I created my own. I used upper part of Burda corset pattern #110 10/2013 and lower part from corset pattern #113 01/2014. I modyfied the lines a bit and the size to “37” as I am just in the middle between 36 and 38. The corset is fully lined, the boning is in each seam. I used eyelets instead of the zipper so it is more comfortable. I also inserted old bra cups between the satin and the lining so it is invisible. I used a bit tougher polyester satin with NO elastane. The pattern instructions recommend stretch fabric, but I think that tougher fabric makes a better shape. The sewing itself was not as difficult as I expected, it was only very time consuming.
