Vintage style underbust corset made from #106 Past Patterns with quite a few modifications. I shortened the length by 1 /12 inches. took a bit off the top so that it came to the underbust and redrafted the waist curve, reducing it in by about 3 inches smaller than the pattern sizing.
This pattern goes together like a dream, it is so well drafted. I love it and will definitely make another one (I made this for a friend, if only I could get in a corset this size!).
(*Edited to say Boy, are those really unflattering photos of the fabric. My friend looks great :) The blotches on it aren’t there in real-life).
Ballet slipper pink corset coutil from Whaley’s of Bradford which reminded me of vintage corsets that I have seen. It was a perfect colour for this style I think. I lined it with coffee colored chinese silk which had just a hint of pink in it in a certain light. The boning channels are natural unbleached twill tape from HEMA in The Netherlands and the lovely cream and pink toile grosgrain ribbon used as a waist-stay was from eBay. I love the colour combinations here and think that they have quite a vintage feel. Much more tasteful than my usual choices LOL
The unbleached cotton lacing and all the grommets, bones and busk were from www.venacavadesign.co.uk . I also purchased the pattern from here.
