My main reason for wanting to sew is to learn to make corsets. You inspire my ^_^

Thanks!  If you've never made a corset a good starting point is Linda Sparks' The Basics of Corset Building.  I got it not long after it was rereleased, and after reading it WISHED I'd bought it ten years ago.  It would have saved me a lot of frustration back when I was starting out.  It's written from the standpoint that you've never made a corset, but do have basic sewing skills, although you're not a master seamstress or anything, which is a good gray area for a lot of people starting out.  (IE it doesn't approach it with comparisons to other structured formalwear or period dress a lot of people now wouldn't be familiar with making).

Ohman. Thank you for actually making corsets look good on a curvy body! I see so many pretty, curvy girls out in public or at conventions who will sloppily dress themselves under it, or not put the girls up where they need to be! However, you did a stunning job! Beautiful!

Also, zombie santa? Scary-awesome!
