Patterns to date
 
All the patterns I have drafted so far since starting Patreon in February are represented in this picture. You'll see I have added August now - this will be posted towards the end of the month. I used a Symington corset shape for its inspiration however it has morphed into nothing like the original! There were sweeping boning channels which I love but on making up the toile the diagonal channels tugged the panels in odd directions which I didn't like, so back to near vertical boning channels for this one. I wanted a contrasting top and bottom so left the top really quite straight - almost horizontal with a little uplift at the centre front bust area. The bottom is hugely swooping in contrast. I haven't even graded this one yet for commercial patterning and I'm already thinking about next month's design - I thought a 'body' - I've been making lingerie and would like to incorporate this into my corsetry. Better get this one finished first though!
