I recently made the corset from the pattern McCalls 3609,

Link to pattern:

Link to photo of my corset:

And over all, in the end, it came out really nice, I only had one problem. The pattern called for 2 and 3/4 yds. of covered boning, but I ended up need closer to 6 yards. It's probably just a typo or something. Tongue

Also, for the front closure it called for a corset busk, which is not easy to find if you don't want to buy it off the internet, so instead I used hook and eyes, and they seem to be working out really well.

normal soft-strip hook & eyes won't work well if you mean to pull your waist or other body parts in at all though. it'll just stretch out the front funny.
do be careful about the corsets,okay? because done wrong,it breaks the corset,or it breaks YOU!

I have worn it two or three times so far, and the hook and eyes seem to be working out fine. They arn't the kind you get on a strip, I had to sew each one on individually, not sure it that makes a difference. I also never tighten it much, just enough so that it stays up Wink I'm not much for squeezing my insides all out of shape. Tongue
