The Creation of Symington Corset Ref #2370

Hello folks,

This is my dress diary for the Symington Corset Ref #2360/ #2370, that I created for the 2017 Foundations Revealed Competition.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Video: The creation of a modern Symington evening corset

Since I think this competition is more about challenging oneself and sharing new experiences, than actually competing, I filmed my whole construction process to share it with you! In the video, you can see how I execute certain techniques such as pattern matching, cording, roll pinning, setting in the busk and much more. I hope you enjoy it and discover a few new techniques! :) Let me know if you want to see more videos like this!

Pattern Making

A few impressions of the pattern making process. If you’re interested I’ll write a detailed article about the alterations I did to the pattern.

Mock-Ups

First mock-up: The fit around the waist, hips and back is alright, but the bust offers no support.

Second mock-up: With a much better fit around the bust! I raised the neckline at the front and under the arms, took the bust seam in over the bust point and most importantly moved the tips farther to the sides so the bust got better support from the sides and couldn’t fall out there anymore.
