2016 CORSET WITH ASYMMETRIC DRAPERY

 

You need: taffeta, separating zip, metal/plastic bones, stiff organza (for lining).

 

IF THE PATTERNS HAVE DOUBLE CONTOUR, THE SEAM ALLOWANCE IS PROVIDED,

IF THE PATTERNS HAVE SINGLE CONTOUR, THE SEAM ALLOWANCE IS NOT PROVIDED.

 

SEAM ALLOWANCES: 2 cm for left side seam (to stitch the zipper). 1 cm for other seams

 

ATTENTION! Before sewing, print paper patterns and lay them out according to the linen width (minimal width is 140 cm) to find out how much material you need (do not forget about double and symmetric details).

WHEN SEWING, BE CAREFUL WITH NOTCHES THEY MUST BE COINCIDING!

PLEASE KEEP BEAM THREAD DIRECTION.

 

CUTTING:

 

Taffeta:

1. All corsets pieces as well as draped insets and shoulder stripes (we recommend taffeta as lining also)

Stiff organza:

1. All main corset pieces

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

 

1. Set metal/plastic bones which are 2 cm shorter than seam length (to make sewing more comfortable) in bodice seams.

 

2. The zipper is in left side seam.

 

3. Gather draped front/back parts along edges to necessary size, then fix by hand with blind stitches on ready front/back parts with bones but without lining. Make all pleats by hand when the garment is on a mannequin, cut extra fabric if necessary. Sew the lining to the corset.
