Unfortunately, and fortunately I have a naturally tiny waist. My hip spring is 10", so when I corset I want at least a 12-13" hip spring. That amount of curve is a bit daunting when drafting.
I really wanted this corset. It's absolutely gorgeous and perfectly historical. Before the Automobile is amazing; she is one of my absolute favorite seamstresses.
So I bought this pattern thinking it would solve all my problems- I mean NO DRAFTING! I cut out the pieces and then puzzled at them. There were no directions. None. The pieces had numbers, but I couldn't figure out what they were trying to tell me to do. I'm sure it will be a good pattern, I've heard great things about Ageless Patterns, but I'll have to contact the owner to figure out what to do next.
Frustrated, I started from scratch, and modified an existing pattern that I drafted last year. I added gores and tried to place the bones in a similar location to Before the Automobile's corset. I got close...ish, but it isn't perfect. The corset fits me perfectly, but barely brings in my waist.
At least I've learned enough to improve upon the next corset!
