Hi! I cut the pattern to fit me but I can tell you where I adapted it from. There is a fantastic book called 'Corsets: Historical Patterns and Techniques' by Jill Salen. It's got loads of patterns of corsets through the ages in it and all are drawn on grids to be scaled up. Thankyou for watching me by the way - much appreciated Have you made corsets before or are you just getting into it?
Thanks for the help! I'm just getting into it, but I've been sreing for years. I just have trouble finding a patten, I don't really wanna buy one because if I don't end up liking it, I'll have a bunch of patterns and books I won't use :c

No problem! I totally understand where you are coming from - when I was just starting out I looked all over for free patterns and resources that would help me but there never is much out there. I think I have managed to scan my pattern and get it to the right size in microsoft word. If you note me your email address I could try to send it to you!
