Freedom Corset Pattern
This well-fitting Freedom Corset Pattern includes a full Corset Pattern and Underbust Corset Pattern variation. This pattern is is so-named due to the amount of design freedom you have when constructing it. Customers use either a traditional busk (giant loops and studs) for the front closing, a separating zipper (think crystal!), or no opening at all. The lace-up back is constructed with either pre-made grommet tape or you can set your own grommets (the preferred and longer lasting method). You could even use a long row of hook and eye tape. Fabrics can vary from exquisite Chinese brocades to power net – the choice is yours.
This corset uses no bone casing. A simpler method of construction is used, by stitching channels into the layers of lining and outer fabric, on the seams and in the centre of the panels. However, our customers have used pre-made bone casing or bone tubing, as well as making their own casing from the fashion fabric. You have the freedom of choice!
Most women today use a corset as fashion wear, not underwear – you will find them surprisingly comfortable. This one pattern provides you infinite design opportunities. Bust sizes 28-50 included in one envelope.
