Patterns for lingerie?

I’ve seen different patterns for lingerie but nothing that I’m looking for. Heres an idea. Its an all in one girdle i think. I’m trying to find similar patterns (whether it be bras, girdles…etc) But if you have one for an all in one then thats the best. Can you help me out?

  • Hi Shanna!
    May I suggest starting here?:
    I haven’t tried her patterns yet, but I believe she does sew-a-longs as well (not entirely sure though!)
    Good luck.

  • I always call that a corselette although I don’t know if it’s the right term. You could try Foundations Revealed, a sewing website dedicated to lingerie and undergarments. I believe a gentleman did a walk through for drafting your own pattern for these, then altering it for girdles, merry widows, longline bras etc. It is a pay site, but if I remember rightly there is the option for a free trial.

  • Everyone beat me to it.

  • A book called Vintage Lingerie, Historical patterns and techniques by Jill Salen has plenty of patterns including a corselet dated 1950. They are graph patterns and only limited instructions however.
