So I tried my hand at coreseting and I thing I got decent results. I used the civil war pattern from simplicity wich I made longer and I had to make considerably smaller at the bust since I'm so small-chested.
It has a front busk and back lacing.
It's made out of linen that I got at 75% off.
The corset supplies I got off a canadian-based online shop for aproximately 30$ CAD. And the eyelets I got for free from my aunt (but they will need superglue because 2 are falling off).

I am really impressed! It looks professional, and you could wear it just as a top because of the color. Great job.

Wow, it's beautiful and fits you so well! Luscious green. Nice job.  What is the busk made of?

Hey Kategirl, I haven't forgotten about the contour-waist, cartridge-pleated ren fair skirt tutorial I promised you :)  Soon!

That came out great...especially for a first corset!  I haven't made one in ages, but I've been thinking about doing another one soon.  

The only tip I have for you is about the lacing.  Corsets are usually laced from the top down and the bottom up.  You should end up with long loops at the waistline.  This makes it easier to adjust tension and really cinch in the waist. Wink

thanks for all your good comments Smiley

making a corset isn't all that hard, it is time consuming though. And an extra pair of hands comes in handy for the adjustement.

Goddess:I made all the top parts of the pannels smaller so it could fit me and I adjusted them on my mock up so they would line up properly.

retrokitten: i know about the lace, I just haven't gotten around to cutting my lace in two and putting some new tips on Roll Eyes i'm so lazy.

TinySoapyBubbles: street wear baby, so everybody can look at me Wink
