Reversible Corset Vest pattern and tutorial by Sindeon Reversible Corset Vest pattern and tutorial by Sindeon
My new project - corsets for the girls! Making it is pretty simple:
- there are only 3 pieces - front, back and neck.
- you have to cut 4 pieces of the back and 4 pieces of the front
- it looks 'clean' (no sewing lines) on both sides, so it is completely reversible!

Creating the no-sew style:
- just put two front pieces on each other (the nice side on the inside) and sew it where I drew the dashed line. Then turn it inside out. Repeat it with the other two fronts.
- the back one is a little bit tricker: sew together two backs on the spine line, the other two again, as long as you want (I did it until my waist line). Instead of this, you can just fold the back piece (cutting out two pieces instead of four), but then it does not open up on the bottom.
- cut out the neck piece, fold it in half, sew it where I drew the dashed line. The fourth, not clean edge goes inside the back pieces - now sew the back pieces along the dashed line.
- now put it together on the sides - I simply tucked the side of the back inside the side of the front piece.

At the end, put the metal holes in the front, and on the shoulders, and tie it with a nice lacing.

It took me about 3 hours, including figuring out the pattern (I drew the pattern on tracing paper, then took a photo and traced it just for you guys, it is in scale). You can print the pattern by resizing it if you want - for me, the straight back line was 80 cm (31,5 inch).

I want to do another one, which would be different color on the inside and on the outside. This way you would have two corsets :) I just dont know yet how to handle the neck, because if it is different color inside and outside, you could always tell its a double color corset. Maybe I dont make a neck for that one. Actually, once this was a curtain.

I made this pattern to scale, so there is only one dimension - the back line is 80 cm. However, the best way to do it is to measure yourself, and adjust the sizes on a trial textile or on paper. If you need, drop me an email and I can send it to you in .pdf, in 1:1 scale. However, it wont help you much - this is my size, and it might not even fit you. Just copy the general shape on a paper and try it on - redraw if necessary.

I would use something heavy like brocade or velvet, but it does not really matter. The only thing is, dont use anything flexible - the pattern does not need flexibility.
