This is my first try ever at a corset.  I was watching the DIY Network and they have a show called Stylelicious and some chica wrapped her friend in duct tape to get a corset pattern.  My boyfriend had way too much fun taping me up.  This is a very effective and accurate way to make a quick corset pattern without any measuring.

Princess seams are a pain w/ satin.  GRR!

Bad back lacing attempt.  It's hard to lace yourself up when you're the only one doing the lacing.  Undecided

This is just to show off my amazing finds at this lil backwoods Alabama store.  That's a Simplicity Clothing Construction book, a Bishop's Method of Construction book and oodles of vintage buttons including some ancient solid leather buttons (even the loop hole is leather!).

Comments?? Critiques??? Suggestions??

I think it is gorgeous. I love watching the DIY channel! I have the bishop's method book and I love finding vintage sewing books.

www.diynetwork.com is an awesome site!!  It has tutorials for all sorts of things from crafts to home improvement.

Here's the site with the sort of tutorial ... it's more of guidelines than anything.

I saw that one!  I was afraid that my hubby would tape me up and wouldn't be able to cut it off right.  It looks great, and I do love purple!
