Simplicity 9769

This is the Simplicity 9769 pattern from one of my kits - just two seams to adjust and then the rest of the boning can go in - it needs about 10 more, and then some binding. I used about 1/3 metre of satin coutil - that's all I had dyed! The waist is 22 inches. 4 inches smaller than my natural waist (on a good day and a chocolate starved week!). I'm going to post up a 'quick guide' in the next few days...


  1. That is quite amazing - Princess B and I were only talking this morning about Victorian corsets and 19in waists! Maybe a corset is what I need for my shoebox figure - the thought of a waist reduction of 4in is astonishing - and it looks very beautiful, too!
