Laughing Moon Bone Chart for Silverado and Dore Corsets.

The following charts have been modified from those in the Laughing Moon Corset pattern to reflect metric size bones as sold by Farthingales. Corset sizes are listed down the left, bone lengths are listed across the top and quantities required are with in the chart with total bones required can be found on the left hand side.

PLEASE note that this is only a guide! If you notice the grading of the pattern gets longer as it gets bigger, this is not always the case with people. It is always best to buy the pattern, make a sample garment for fitting purposes and then order the bones that you have discovered you require based on measuring the sample garment after alterations. You may discover that A) you need different length bones and/or B) you need more/less of them. This will depend on personal choice and corset fit/support. Bones that are too long are very uncomfortable and can force holes in the corset fabric, getting the right length is very important.
