fabric cut

In an effort to be super precise I decided to trace the pattern on the fabric then add seam allowance. The stitching line is more important than the edge of the seam allowance and this way it is right on the fabric for me to follow when I'm sewing.

I added 1/2 inch seam allowance to the side of each piece, except the center back because I'll be attaching a lacing strip there. The top and bottom edges have no seam allowance. Here are the pieces, ready to go.

I was nervous the adia cloth might be too whimpy for a corset, but it felt pretty sturdy as I was cutting. Good. 

Next up, the cording.
