I am so pleased to announce the recent launch of my online Etsy store LACED UNLACED PATTERNS for vintage sewing patterns. LACED:UNLACED started off as a personal blog documenting some of the many photographs I have taken over the years from museum/ archive trips of historical corsets and foundation wear. As a collector of vintage and antique corsets I have also been able to study and take patterns from some of the garments from my personal collection.
The first pattern available is the C1941-42 AVRO LACED BACK CORSET WITH UNDERBELT here
This is a 10 pattern piece corset pattern taken from a 1940’s corset girdle from my personal collection of vintage garments. It features an inner support belt which you can choose to include in making up. Original Article here
The pattern comes in the original vintage garment size ONLY.
GARMENT INFORMATION PACK: INCLUDING LOTS OF PHOTOS OF THE ORIGINAL GARMENT (12 PAGE PDF)
CONSTRUCTION NOTES: STEP BY STEP GUIDE ON MAKING UP THE GARMENT, NOTIONS (3 PAGE PDF)
SKILL LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE
The pattern is provided in PDF format ready to be printed on A3 paper. You will need to print the pattern to the actual size. A scale is included. This pattern could be printed on A4 and stuck together carefully.
The pattern does include seam allowances. The pattern and construction guide advises on the seam allowance but do not feel you have to follow it strictly if you have your own preferred method of make.
A Toile could be made to check the fit of the pattern. The pattern can be used as a basic block to amend to your own size requirements. Check the length of the Pattern. It can be lengthened or shortened at the waist line if required.
The pattern can be drafted to your measurements for an additional fee if you do not feel confident in drafting your own pattern.
Patterns are for personal use and may not be copied, published, resold or distributed in any form.
NOTE: This listing is for the pattern only and does not include the physical garment.
