Pikachu Waist Cincher Corset

Added Oct 27, 2016

Waist cincher corset.

There are a few issues with the pattern:

1. Piece 4 is labeled upside down.
2. Piece 3 to piece 4 seam is not the right size.
3. There are no directions to cut an additional back facing, although it’s described in the instructions.
4. Sizing is off. I measured the pattern, determined I needed to add 2" across the seam allowances, and it was too big. So had to take that 2" back out.
5. The curved back edge is not usual for a corset, and I could not use flat steel boning, which is preferred alongside grommets for stability. It gaps slightly with spirals. If I make it again I will straighten the back edge.

Material Notes

Outer layer: 100% cotton, interfaced
Inner layer: heavy black cotton duck
Purchased extra-wide double fold bias tape for binding
9" busk
1/2" double faced satin ribbon for lacing (~ 4 yards)
Spiral steel boning
Size 0 grommets

    You have a unique Pokemon garment ! I like the blouse print you are wearing as well. Cincher would also stun with a shiny solid colour garment. Fun!
