I have to ask, which pattern do you use for the corset?
I've been attempting to sew a similar corset, but since I draft my own patterns (ha ha), they always come out wrong.

since this was my first ever I figured I wouldn't try my own pattern way too much, so I borrowed a book from the library called "Corsets and crinolines" By Norah Waugh (I think... not sure about the name) and in there I found a pattern for a corset that seemed like a good start, so I meassured and then sketched it in bigger scale, cut it out in some left over fabrics I had, sew them together and from there started working on the shape to make it fit her, and also to form a top and bottom of the thing. Looking back now I realise I might as well have just done a pattern directly from left-overs, shaping it after myself (we're the same size, me and the girl) and then just used that as a pattern... >.< Butyeah, this is how I did it =)

That is simply amazing.  I wish I had a friend who would make something like that for me.

I completely want to start making plans to make something like that (or at least inspired by it)!
