This stunning pattern is from a 1931 French magazine and includes instructions for making all of the corsets you see in the picture. The pattern itself included is for the larger corset in the center and is a diagram that is easily drafted at home. A French curve will come in handy for this but is not required. For the other garter belts, instructions are given but they are quite vague and wouldn't be considered patterns by modern standards.
Fabric requirements: No fabric requirements are given with this vintage pattern but I would recommend 2 yards of muslin, and then 2 yards of the fashion fabric you choose to make this from.
Suggested fabrics: satin coutil, strong cotton, power net etc.
The pattern diagram is for a 25" waist but this is easily adapted to any size as you draft your own. Instructions are also given for making a muslin and fitting your own pattern to your individual size.
Difficulty level: intermediate
The instructions are in English AND French.
Printing a PDF is easy. Just open, hit print, and make sure that your printer scale is set to 100% (this should be the default setting in most cases).
