Underbust Corset

My recent obsession with Victorian fashion truly inspired this piece. I absolutely love all of the corsets, ruffled sleeves, lace, coats, all of it! A part of me hopes that the style makes a come-back  in the near future… This specific corset also reminds my husband of a lady pirate. So, to each, their own. This corset is great for many different looks!

The best thing about a corset is it’s ability to fit a lot of sizes because it is adjustable by design. Making the general corset size smaller or larger is simple to do by increasing or decreasing the number of rows that are the same and repeated for the majority of the project, rows 7-94. This pattern makes the corset about 30 inches around, fully closed.
