I really like the style of that dress and it looks very well made. Very nice! Smiley

Very nice design. I might have to steal that idea (if you don't mind).

And it looks very well made too. Great work!

sexy_penguin - I wouldn't reccomend plastic boning. The plastic boning I've come across will not give you the same support as steel boning. And plastic has a tendency to bend in more than one place. I always buy my corset stuff online. http://www.farthingales.on.ca is one place worth a look.

Gorge! Thats soo Betty Page! (in a Good Way  Grin)
Is there a bad way?  Wink

It says

Remember to add sewing-allowance to the pattern pieces before they are cut. 1 cm all around, 4 cm at center back. The corset will tighten the waist 4 cm

I added 1 1/2 cm at each seam and nothing at top and bottom (since I used bias tape there). Since it automatically takes away 4 cm I really don't know why yours ended up too big.

Yes, bias tape is what I have used to. I sewed it on to the right side first, folded it over and hand sewed it on the inside so that there would be no visible seam. Hand sewing also makes it a bit easier to shape the bias tape around the straps.

I didn't use a busk in this corset. It got two pieces of boning center front. No opening in the front makes it a bit difficult to put on but even harder to take off Smiley I have no problem tightening the laces by myself though.

If you want one where  you just fill in your measurements there's http://costume.dm.net/ - look under Custom Corset Pattern Generator.

http://www.softcom.net/users/unicorn/corset.htm has an instruction for making a pattern for a Victorian corset.

I will say this,I am not that well endowed in the boob department and I look like a add for Milk when I try it on.LOL.
Cheesy I know what you mean, I'm as fascinated each time I put it on. I've never had cleavage before.

.Ill post pic when I am one.
Please do that. I'd love to see more versions of this corset. I might make another one as well!
