I hope someone can help me. For our one year anniversty my boyfriend and I are going to see Rocky Horror Picture Show and I want to make him Frank N Furter's (I don't know if I spelled it right) corset. The thing is I don't have his measurements and I don't have any kind of a pattern for this kind of corset.

The easiest thing to do would be to fake it and make it out of stretchy material.  Also, your boyfriend will probably thank you for not making him wear a real, boned corset.  If you can gank a shirt of his that's a little snug, that'd be a good start.  All you'd do is make a tube top, essentially, with faux corset detailing.  The trick is to use a heavy-ish stretch fabric for it, so it has some body.
