You did such a beautiful job! I have been meaning to try my hand at corset making, but so far haven't been brave enough. The one you made is gorgeous!
Well I think it's a good time to try it out then! I find that making corsets isn't as hard as it is tedious. I used the tutorial here: http://www.darkleather.net/DarkLeatherFrameset.htm
to draft the pattern for the corset but did not follow the instructions for actually sewing it together. Instead, I used a method I learned from making the Truly Victorian 110 pattern (http://www.trulyvictorian.com/catalog/110.html
) which I cannot recommend enough to start out corsetmaking. The one pattern is multi-sized and includes pretty easy-to-follow instructions for finding a proper fit, doing the mock-up, sewing it together, putting in a busk and boning, and lacing it up. Heather, the woman who drafted it, is also available on the forums on her website to answer questions you have as you go along.
If you use inexpensive fabric and industrial zip ties for boning (found in the plumbing section of hardware stores), it's not that pricey of a venture.
