Decide what kind of a corset suitable for you. Posture correctors are divided into four main types: modeling, orthopedic, support or substitution. Modeling is suitable for those who have a lateral curvature of the spine. In this case, bending is hard insert, typically of plastic. Orthopedic corset strengthens the lower or upper part of the spine, depending on the nature of the curvature. If you need to adjust the lower part of the spine, need a lumbar corset, for top – like bodice with a reinforced back. If the back round or, conversely, very flat, need a supportive corset. Sometimes even the vicarious corset, which is worn after surgery on the spine or the abdominal cavity. It allows you to temporarily remove the excessive load from the muscles.
Select the style of corset. It is worn under clothing, and instead of the blouses and vests, so it should be a subject of your wardrobe, your style to the rest of the things. Ideal korsetka in fashion at all times folk style. But it could be top, and vest, and blouse-shirt.
It is very important to choose the right fabric. It should be fairly dense natural material that, among other things, is not going to fold and holds the shape. Can be applied and blended materials with a small inclusion of man-made fibers.
If you have a basic dress pattern, you need to remove only one measure – to measure the distance from the waist to the armpit. The rest of the measurements already taken into account when making patterns.
Simulate the main pattern. Draw it on a piece of graph paper to the hip line and cut. Transfer of the lateral groove in the shoulder. This is done so. Incise the brachial groove from its end point to the intersection with side, slide the fragments shelves to the side seam turned out straight, and tape side slit with tape or a strip of paper. The pattern of the back to simulate not necessary.
Work with the patterns of the shelves. Apply the main line (since you traced the old pattern, those lines on the patterns are not). Waist line divide it into 4 equal pieces. Using the average mark swipe perpendicular to the intersection lines of the hips and chest. Simulate undercut, as shown in the figure.
Simulate undercut
Waist line backless split into 3 parts. From the intersection of the chest line with the armhole defer 11.5 cm, extending the line of the chest. Calculate the size of the undercut, according to their own standards. To do this, both the circumference, divide by 4. The results obtained for the bust add the 11.5. From the resulting numbers subtract the circumference of the waist divided by 4. The difference divide it in half – this will be the maximum size of the alignment groove. It again divide in half and place the results obtained from left and right marks, separating the Central and lateral parts of the back. The lower ends of the recesses are on the line of the hips. To determine the upper ends of the recesses, divide the distance between the lines the bust and waist 8. Put the segments down from the waist line. Draw the undercut. Narrow back 1-2 cm and mark the spot for the lacing.
Determine the shape of the upper and lower sections of the corset. They can be straight, arcs, figured. Cut out the pattern. All manipulations need to directly into pattern. When cutting circle upper edge of the corset on the drawn line, and the upper part of the shelves – on the chest and superimposed on each other.
Cutting corset on cheap fabric (you can take an old sheet), sweeps them and try them on. Correct connections and form parts with pins. Pull the basting, pins, leave in place.
Outline details of the corset on a thick cloth. If necessary, a reinforcing strip make a corset or one of its sidewalls have two layers. Sostrochite undercut. Treat the bottom (you can just manually sew or to stitch on machine decorative stitch). Simulate top. It can be made from something easy and flowing, for example, from Jersey. Look, this part may as the top Greek dresses, so sewing can be right for yourself.
Cut a piece of knit. Blank length must be equal to the distance from the chest to mid shoulder blades, and the piece to be a rectangle. Fold the piece in half. Set a place for the neck and make an incision along the fold. Need to cut back. The edge of its complete closure with a looped braid or rolica from the same cloth. Try it on, mark the pleats on the shoulders and Sametime them. Baste the top to the cut of the corset and pristrochite. Excess allowances cut. Handle openings, if the edges are cut, and the neck. The back part of the corset punch holes for the grommets and insert the cord.
