A one off corset kit suitable for beginners, which contains all the parts required to make the Sew Curvy 'Victoria' Corset complete with flossing and lace trim. This corset is based on authentic Victorian corsets but tweaked a little so that it is a more comfortable modern fit. When made up comes to a little above midbust and can easily be adapted to an overbust corset pattern.
The corset pattern is multi sized and contains very simple instructions to make a single layer corset with twill tape boning channels. This is an authentic method of corset construction used by the Victorians.

Please note this and the Sophia Corset Kit are the only corset kits on the market which come with pre-cut boning. This is because these patterns have gone through rigorous testing as they are the house patterns of Sew Curvy and The Oxford School of Corsetry.
