Emile Savoye Corset 1905: Sun

Added Feb 6, 2013

by Craftine

Castlerock, France






Here is the result of the first try of the 1905 Emile Savoye corset Pattern:

For this version, I opted for the use of flat steel boning, the sensation is completely different, much firmer … and comfortable. Waist reduction is facilitated : 1cm more than in Moon version. The gain would probably be higher if the fabrics were thinner.

Material Notes

cotton, boning, satin, lace

    You are such an inspiration. I have a pattern ready to make my first one. Just have to learn how to size it properly for me and get some courage!

    Gorgeous! But how do you apply it to your measurements? It seems so complicated to me…

      Thank you iewa,
      I cheated! ^ ^
      I used the mockup of a classic corset (vertical seams) which I was sure it was my measurements. I put it on me and I traced the lines of the Emile Savoye’s pattern. Then I cut the three pieces of the mockup, I copied on paper and finally I sewed a second mockup. Working in this way, I was sure not to spend too much time to make adjustments…
      You can see the mockup here: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-47RDJQModCI/UK044Q-n-KI/AAAAAAAAAlk/30TkrK0OWC4/s1600/toile.jpg my first idea was to make an underbust : )
