Couture : patron d'une ceinture corset par Jacci Jayes Jeudi 17 février 2011 4 17 /02 /Fév /2011 08:01 Point de tricot cette fois-ci, sinon je vais en lasser plus d'une. Voici un patron (anglais) gratuit pour une ceinture obi style corset. Vraiment très joliment porté par la demoiselle. Comme j'avais prêté un de mes livres Burda avec les patrons d'obi (et que je n'ai jamais récupéré ceux-ci) ; j'ai voulu en rechercher un modèle : celui-ci m'a séduit car il ne monte pas trop haut et structure la silhouette. - Patron gratuit : ceinture corset-obi (en anglais) Selon les adaptations, on pourra le porter sur un corsage fin ou sur un top décolleté. Alfafa PS pour voir le patron, il suffit de s'incrire sur Burdastyle (c'est gratuit, on valide le lien envoyé par mail et c'est tout) et vous pourrez télécharger gratuitement les patrons "Free".

The Corset Maker's Tools | Foundations Revealed When I first started constructing corsets, finding the right tool for the right job was a real pain. When you think about it, a lot of the tools needed to make a good quality corset can’t be found in the average haberdasher's shop. There are a myriad of possibilities, so which are the right tools to use? I have found that there isn’t one tool to suit all. Fabric Preparation Freezer Paper Freezer Paper The first essential is Reynolds Freezer Paper, which is freely available in the US and can be sourced abroad on sites like eBay (be sure to shop around as prices vary wildly). I have been specific with the brand here because it is the only one I have used and it’s fantastic. I always draw up my patterns on thick card. I love it because there is no need to pin it to the fabric, which I hate doing. To use freezer paper you simply draw your pattern piece on the dull side, lay it on top of your fabric (shiny side down) and run a warm iron over it.

Now, simply tape the pattern pages together:

Perfect Boning Channels | Foundations Revealed Do you struggle to stitch straight boning channels? Do your stitch lines end up taking unexpected detours? Lots of people have asked how to get perfectly straight and even boning channels and it’s something I struggled with for a long time. But through trial and a lot of error I have come up with a few tips and tricks that help me tame unruly stitching. I should point out that while I am confident that these techniques will help those of you who are having some problems, you won’t see the full benefit unless you practise. I never found a way round the old adage of “practise, practise, practise”. One of the things that helped me was to draw squiggly lines on a piece of coutil, trace over them with machine stitching, and then stitch beside them again in an attempt to create a swirly boning channel. Top Tips As I mentioned before, practice. Boning Channel Choices What you use to make your boning channels is as important as how you stitch them. Marking Out Your Boning Channels

This article aims to address those issues and provide some ideas for experimentation. Let’s start with some of the misconceptions, because they appear to be one of the main reasons that people experience difficulties when working out the positioning of their bones. Boning has one primary function: to keep the shape of the corset by ensuring the fabric is taut. The Positioning of Boning Channels Trying to work out where to place your boning channels is a common problem when venturing into drafting your own corset patterns. Sadly, there is no simple answer – no hard and fast rule - all possibilities are suitable in some situations and not recommended in others. There are so many things that can Positioning For Aesthetic Purposes I have several ways I work out the boning for these corsets:

Easy Pattern Drafting | Your Wardrobe Unlock'd by Cathy Hay “Using your individual measurements, a pattern is drafted by scratch using the most exacting of standards. It's very clinical and scientific. Everything is measured with a ruler to the greatest degree of precision possible, much like an engineering drawing, using a drafting square and a scale formula. The bespoke clothing industry and the patternmaking industry make pattern drafting seem terribly complicated and mysterious, and why not? But let's cut them a little slack. Although patterns are made and sold for our convenience, available in a range of convenient sizes, most of us know that this still does not guarantee a well-fitting garment. And so the single most freeing skill that a sewer or costumer can have is to learn to draft his or her own patterns. To begin, a basic “block” can be produced. Yes, the traditional process of pattern drafting is complicated and mysterious. Before we begin This block would not be suitable for coats or jackets, however.

Draft Your Own Corset Pattern | Foundations Revealed Perfectly fitting patterns at last! Muhahaha! One of the most frustrating challenges in corsetmaking is to get the darn thing to fit properly. Corsets are such unforgiving, tightly fitted garments that a good one must have a perfect fit; there's no room for error. After getting frustrated with commerical patterns, you're probably starting to wonder how to draft (draw out) your own patterns from a list of measurements. (You can also play with pattern drafting a basic bodice with our equally simple (and free) Easy Pattern Drafting tutorial at our sister site.) After giving this method a try, I hope you will start to see the awesome designing and dressmaking power that drafting skills can give you. I've devised these instructions for you based on corset designs of the late 1870s. Thank you very much, the [beginner's corset drafting] tutorial is really wonderful and easy to follow, even for a beginner like me!
