E-Pattern- Edwardian Bust Improver
This listing is for an E-Pattern to print yourself at home on your home printer's USA letter and A4 sized paper.
--- DESCRIPTION ---
This pattern is inspired by an original extant garment in a museum collection, and is suitable for looks from 1900-1908. It helps achieve the S-Curve silhouette of the early Edwardian period
This is meant to be worn under your corset, to help pad out the chest and achieve the "pouter pigeon" look.
--- Included in This Pattern ---
This pattern includes two pattern sheet files. One for a small chest, one for a medium to large chest. You may need to make adjustments for your preference and size. This look is very exaggerated compared to what we are used to today.
No illustrated instructions are included. Basic written instructions are included. This is relatively simple to construct, so experienced stitchers should be able to put this together with little difficulty. No cutting chart or yardage is included.
--- Materials Required ---
To make this you will need a base fabric of medium weight cotton, bias binding to match, lace beading, ribbon of a size to fit through the lace beading, and a flat lace to be gathered, or a pre-gathered lace. You will also need a stuffing fabric, such as fiber fill, or to be period correct, cotton batting (not flat quilting batting).
No cutting chart is included.
