The Curvatious Bollego Corset

Undoubtedly the ultimate historically designed corset in our collection, the Bollego pattern has been created with the full, curvatious lines of the late 1800's in mind. Utilizing a separate belt panel to hold the curve of the corset in place, maximising the fullness of the bust and hip is this patterns top priority. The finished garment is fully boned and features vertical cord piping to boost its aesthetic appeal, as well as to further smooth the silhouette, and this makes the Bollego the perfect addition to any corset enthusiasts collection. Our sample is constructed from satin, with an additional layer of Devoré felt polka-dot-net on the front panels.

CREATIVE TIPS

The perfect corset project for intermediate sewers with some corset-making experience, the Bollego pattern has been created using more than just our simple two-layer construction. While the standard method is suitable for beginner sewers, the additional features and more technical sewing techniques involved in the overall construction of this garment really kick it up a notch. Sewers who are considering creating a corset, but are looking for something simpler should attempt another corset pattern in our collection; there are many more great designs to choose from.
