Measuring for a corset/bodyshapers

MMsewing | Posted in General Discussion on

Ladies: anyone out there making these bodyshapers?  They are not your true corset with stays, but A LOT of spandex!  That makes it easier, but a different look. Any way I have a Moulage finished and fitted for my customer and need to guidance.  Since the Moulage fits REALLY snug!  would anyone suggest how much smaller I would cut the spandex since it stretches?  I am thinking 1-2 inches.  Need some guidance! Thanks!

    Hello!

    I suggest you to take a look at http://www.leenas.com/English/scaling.html. Until I discovered this webpage a few days ago, I never read anything but "take n/8" at the side seams according to the amount of stretch of the fabric". The approach above seems much more complete but is nevertheless quite simple and logical. I haven't tried it yet. If you use it, give us a feed-back please.
