 i have had so many problems trying to make this corset blatently it is not a fault on your part as every one else seams to have been able to make lots of beautiful corsets,  i did not, mine is 'not human shaped', quote my art textiles teacher and i did not understand the boning part plus, i meant it to cinch me but its now too big... i will have to start over as my holes penised up majorly too. *weeps* i totaly sucked at this...

i want to be able to make one at one point....

here is the tute i made

I suggest you buy a corset pattern (try simplicty). It'll help you understand how it works.

It can be hard to get a corset to fit correctly, especially if you're just working from your measurements and trying to make your own pattern!  My first one was totally screwed-up too, so don't feel bad.  The sad part was I sewed it all by hand so it was over 100 hours of wasted work...

Maybe you can re-do the pattern you made only with a few inches taken off.  Or just buy a pattern and alter it so it looks the way you want.  Good luck!

You can do it, it's just hard. Doing a mockup always helps. Underbusts are easier, so if you did an overbust, perhaps an underbust would be a good starting point.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
