I was surprised recently with the TV110 corset pattern. I have been wanting a new corset for awhile as I do a lot of 1880s reenacting. I admit I drool massively over all the TV patterns, but for some reason the sizing ALWAYS does me in.
The first corset I'm making is for a friend her measurements are:
52" high hip
Now the pattern instructions say "measurements give in the chart are "as laced" and include a 2 inch gap and allowance for fabric give. if using your unlaced waist measurements subtract 2-4 inches.
The woman was not corseted when measure and is very "Squishy" when it comes to corsets. She also usually wears a d or DD corset. (I know that isn't really as important.
I'm completely stumped as to how to figure out what size to make. I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thank you in advance.
