A beginner-friendly pattern for a stunning trendy corsage - that's what "Charlotte" offers you!
The detailed, illustrated instructions for this pattern take you step-by-step through the entire process and allow you to create a beautiful and individual top. Whether you're "just" an adventurous sewing beginner or already experienced, this pattern offers you a perfect balance between complexity and simplicity. Bring your creative ideas to life and discover the joy of crafting with our beginner-friendly corsage pattern.
"Charlotte" is a tight corsage top with straps that can be sewn in a variety of ways with minor alterations: with or without lacing, with or without a zip, zip in the side seam as standard or moved to the centre front or centre back, and with varied seam allowances for different amounts of extra width, i.e. for different purposes. A more comfortable top version in jersey/French terry without stays (this is my "Adidas" model from the photo) is also possible. In addition, a kind of integrated inner bustier can be sewn to provide extra support.
It is also very easy to use as part of a dress, as the waist line is drawn in the pattern.
"Charlotte" is suitable for firmer fabrics, whether woven or knitted is up to your creativity and wishes.
