I wanted to make my own corset and I found Roethke's tute here that was fantastic! I also found a booklet online about custom fitting a corset to your body shape. Since I have a long torso... this was useful. Really useful! So I drafted my own custom pattern using both of these things and thought I'd share how I did it. (UPDATE: Here is the finished corset!)
Like I said, I used two other sources
to make my own mash-up tutorial, and I reference them repeatedly, so don't think I made this up all by my lonesome.
Roethke did a fantastic job on her tutorial so mad props to her and her awesome corsets! And Cathy Hay is a mastermind at fitting corsets, so mad props to her as well for sharing her booklet on corsetry. Links to both of these can be found in the tutorial, which is on my blog. I could copy and paste it here but - OMG that would take forever! And it took a long time to write the thing one time around.
Ok, here's a pic of what the FINISHED pattern will look like for your custom fit corset.
