I always wanted to sew a corset for myself, but when it came to boning I never really understood hot it works (I tried it with patterns form burda style magazine, which we only get in German where I live, and my German isn't exactly perfect:)). But then I found this page http://www.elizabethancostume.net/custompat/index.html that helps you make your own pattern that requires cutting just 2 pieces of fabric (I also always had problems with seams form the fashion and lining fabric matching up. I'm not a really precise person:)), and since I already had all the required materials at home and with carnival coming up I thought I'll try again. And it worked!

And here is a picture from the insides. i didn't have enough boning to do the exact same pattern as suggest on that webpage so I improvised a little.

Well it's a bit too big, since we use the metric measuring system and there were some mistakes made while converting cm to inches, but I'm still really really happy with how it turned out. Now I just have to figure out how to incorporate it in a costume for carnival:) any sugestions:)?

Love the fabric, very feminine without being fussy. Beautiful job.

You could go with a simple chemise. See this tut http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=416027.0 and a full skirt and be flirty. What look do you want to go for. Check out this years Halloween costume challenge. Lots of Victorian, steam punk and such for costumes with corsets. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?board=489.0
