SSP-050: New sewing pattern for Ellowyne Wilde & Friends

Despite the hot weather - which I'll admit did slow me down some - I've managed to work in my OVEN of a room and here's the latest from Raccoon HQ.

*Available in my Etsy shop:

And right here on the blog: (PayPal shopping cart)


My Craftsy store:

On CD disc from Ebay: (No VAT payable, and no charge for the CD itself, just postage.)

If you wish to buy directly from me,  I can supply a PayPal invoice and email the pattern to you within 24 hours of payment.  Usually it will be faster than that, I'm just allowing for the potential differences in time zones.  

Email for a PayPal invoice:

If you do buy from me by email, and you live in the EU, the rules state that I don't have to charge you VAT as it's a direct sale.  So I won't.

Price without VAT is £6.99.

*Etsy will charge EU customers VAT (This does not affect America or other non-EU countries).  I always recommend people to look in my Craftsy store anyway, as the prices fluctuate, due to the international exchange rates.  I always recommend comparing prices.

This is a tried and tested corset pattern for Ellowyne that I've been using for a couple of years.  

Version 1 of the corset is fully boned, with topstitching, but if that's a bit daunting, there are also directions for an easier-to-sew corset style top, using the same pattern pieces (Version 2).  This second version fastens with snaps, so if eyelets are not your thing, snaps will be just dandy.

The armlets too can have eyelets inserted, so they lace up, or you can opt for one of my faves, the bead and buttonhole loop closure.  If you click on the photos, you should be able to see a larger version.

The V2 top here is not boned, but I don't see a reason why you couldn't try boning it.  (Yes, I'm fully aware of how rude that sounds.)

There are two lengths of skirt too., both fully lined, and utilising the corset fabric for the yoke.  I designed this skirt specifically to fit under the corset.

My girls look very feminine and romantic in this ensemble.

Next, I'm hoping to produce something for Evangeline, but not sure yet.  I've been researching steampunk, so I have loads of ideas for that...  and I do have another corset,  which is a different style and I'm thinking of using a different construction for it.

We'll see.  



  1. Gorgeous... another one for the to do list.... It's far too hot.... I feel like a wet noodle!! I'm hoping it really will get cooler tomorrow but I could do without any storms lol!!

    1. Oh, I know! It's too much. I have 2 electric fans just pushing hot air around my room, lol! Yes, I welcome the cooler temps, but not the storms. I don't mind a bit of impressive thunder and lightning, it's all that wet stuff that falls from the sky that I'd rather not have.

    2. Forgot to say thank you, derp. <3 Much appreciated.

    3. Tess I bought the pattern off here but can't remember if you have to send it to me or if it should have appeared automatically... it hasn't appeared as yet... if you need to send it ignore me I'll stop being impatient... blaming the heat for brains like mush.....

    4. Oops! I'm usually pretty hot on that. Can we blame the heat? I'm attaching the files to the email as I type!

    5. Ta muchly got it now ... that's ok... no worries... I'm melting .... it's now 27C in my bedroom.... it seems to be getting warmer not cooling down..... as you can tell I don't do heat... 21C is about my limit these days lol!!

    6. Good-oh. I missed that one. :p Yes, I'm thinking of demanding ice cream, to hell with the diet... I don't do heat either, not at this time of life with hot flushes on top of it!

  2. These are lovely Tess, I'm particularly taken by the juxtaposition of the red polka/floral fabrics in the bodice. Trying to sew here but without any particular enthusiasm or plan....

    1. Thanks Anj. I like to mix prints, but am never too sure if they work, so sometimes I just go for it. I hope you get your mojo back soon.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous, totally worth waiting for. LOVE!

  4. Just bought it from you on Etsy, thank you dear Tess!

    1. (Thought I'd reply separately) Thanks ever so much Stacey!
