There are no seam allowances on the pattern. I used 1/4" so the curved pieces were easier to sew.

Really nice! I'm planning on making a corset for a friend of mine as a gift, and I think I'll use this pattern. Just one question: does the pattern include the seam allowance or do I have to add it?

I'm looking forward to seeing her wedding pics. The corset looks wonderful!

Thanks so much for the reply - I can picture it perfectly now! I'm really looking forward to seeing the Temptress dress next too.

kittoness- no, I don't have a pattern! I'll be making one for the "My Pattern" contest so we'll see how nightmarish it gets...

Good luck with the NK Temptress dress. I did the same dress about a year after the movie came out. I hope you have a pattern (I didnt and let me tell you it was a nightmare to build with out one). And yes a great foundation will help you out a lot. If you liked the temptress another one that she wore that was fun to make was the grey "show must go on" Good luck=)

MagpieJen- the exterior and lining are each sewn up separately, then laid wrong sides together so the seams are all on the inside, and then basted and treated as one. When cutting out, I cut each piece's top and lining at the same time so they would match perfectly. I also pressed the seams in opposite directions for the exterior and lining so they would fit. Some corset patterns allow you to flatline each piece, and then assemble if you're using bone casing tape over each of the seam lines. This one's boning does not match the seams.

This is phenomenal - I would love to make a corset one day, so I'm eating this up :-) Is it essentially flat-lined, then? The lining and exterior are treated as one once they are basted together?
