Last week I sat down and decided to experiment with corset making after doing a bit of Googling. This is what I came up with! (Apologies for picture quality in advance!)







I've never made a corset before, and I'm generally horrible with patterns that come with instructions (I always manage to flub it up SOMEHOW), so finding http://www.ralphpink.com/pattern-cutting/womenswear/corsets was really useful. Six patterns come in a zip file, but there aren't any instructions, you just put it together using your own methods and adjust the pattern if you have to-- it only comes in one size. Given that this was my first one, there was a lot of trial and error, but I feel like I learned more than I would have had I just bought a pattern.

Hope you enjoy, and I'd definitely recommend that site for the corset lovers out there!

Beautiful work!  I've made a corset or two, and I think every one had trial and error involved in the making process.

I love it! You did a great job for someone who always flubs the patterns.  I would have never known.
