Skill Level & Tips
Level: Intermediate/ Advanced
All our historic corset sewing patterns are complex and feature a variety of design details such as external boning, piping, and the addition of a metal busk that require skill in sewing and corset making. However, the Bollego corset sewing pattern is possibly the most challenging due to the diamond waist panel that sits on top of the corset’s body. It is an advanced corset sewing pattern for those who are familiar with making our historic corset sewing pattern range.
The instruction set is comprehensive and will create a fun challenge for those with prior corset construction experience, but if you are looking for something easier, we suggest choosing a less complex historic corset sewing pattern. If you are a complete beginner at corset construction techniques take a look at our modern corset selection, as these focus more on perfecting the standard two layer-construction technique than on additional design features.
The base layer of our corset sample was made with Coutil, a durable fabric known for its exceptional support and structure. To add a touch of elegance and shine, a layer of satin was used as the decorative outer layer, creating a high sheen effect that catches the eye. Additionally, certain front panels were adorned with an extra layer of Devoré felt polka-dot-net, providing texture and intricate detailing. When creating your own Bollego Corset sewing pattern, choose your preferred fabric for the outer decorative layer. Whether it’s satin, chiffon, lace, cotton, mesh, or any other fabric that captures your imagination, ensure that it is not too thick or clumpy to maintain the corset’s desired silhouette and comfort. But bear in mind the base layer must always be made using coutil.
