Anybody know of anywhere to find tutorials on making feathered back pieces like these.
I have a basic idea of how to do them.But do they put buckram or something on the back part to make it stiff or do they make a wire frame or what?
Here is a pic of the back of what I'm talking about http://www.neckelmanns.com/imagelib/sitebuilder/misc/show_image.html?linkedwidth=actual&linkpath=http://www.neckelmanns.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/img_7129.jpg&target=_self

I imagine those feather ends would stick you in the back or fall backwards without support, but I'm guessing a few layers of good stiff interfacing facing the side where you put it on your back would do the trick.

There are a few burlesque seamstresses here with some "wow" clothes they've done. I hope at least one of them sees your post.

The gold-sequin thing is probably buckram, possibly with boning as well.  
There would also have to be straps in front as well; maybe just below the bust and crossing between the breasts and over the shoulders.
You'll see that kind of strap pattern on nearly every Vegas costume, including "topless" ensembles.  My old costume teacher said it was to camouflage the edges of false breasts--used practically all the time so every girl is well-endowed.

Also, it would probably be called a standing collar, try googling that to find a tutorial.
