So, I know that this may have already been answered (I read all the posts so I figured out a few of my questions already) but...

When you create the hourglass shapes on the rectangle, on your tute you do it by a half inch. That I understand, but on the picture it says Waist M - 6, and I believe you said that you did a 6 inch cinch. That makes sense. So since the line goes over all the reduced sections, I'm assuming that if you were not to include the reduced sections it'd equal waist M -6 right? Or does that include the reduced parts too?


The measurement should total M-6 (or whatever reduction you want), and the diamond shapes you cut out are NOT included in that.

Okay, that cleared it up a bit for me. Thanks! I'm drafting my pattern and was a little confused, it's my first self-made pattern. I'll post up a picture once I'm done with it! (That may be in a while since finals are coming up. Sad )I loved this pattern when I saw it, you really did a great job!

And do you think that a simple one color fabric is better or a print? I have some really cool fabric that has a crazy busy print and I'm wondering if it'll look too busy.

I must say, WOW. Awesome tutorial! I just found out about craftster, and this is going to be my first attempt at a project from here. It'll also be my first attempt at a corset, so it may take a while for me to piece it together in my head and on fabric. But once i do, i'll definitely post it! I just have to drink enough orange juice to get enough boning for it first! lol

I just made a corset with your tutorial.  I'm pretty pleased with the results (despite the fact that I accidentally made it too small).

Here it is:





I made the corset out of two water jugs and fabric left over from my last 2 halloween costumes, the only thing I had to buy was a pair of eyelet pliers and some eyelets.

Great tutorial!

It looks great, NinjaPoo!  Do the pieces touch in the back?  I can't really tell if they do or not, but if they do touch, you should flip it around, so that the stays are touching in the front and pulled apart in the back.

Thank you.  No they don't quite touch in the back, but they're a lot closer to touching. I'll try flipping it, thanks for the advice.
