Has anyone ever used this pattern before?  How did it turn out for you?  I just got it not long ago and thought i'd try view C ( lower left ).

I have the pattern, just too busy to attempt it yet.  Plus looking at it, I keep thinking, there has to be an easier way.  I don't particularly care about being precisely historically accurate.

for anyone interested, i have made view C several times, and if you want it to actually be 'corset-y' (ie- tight) youll want to make it a few sizes smaller than what pattern size you normally use at LEAST 1 size, if not 2- corsets should be at least 2 inches smaller than you are to work- also, its picture is misleading- for most people, it is very short- it wont reach your hips- i think ive added at least 3" length every time ive made it.... and i usually make it out of several layers of sturdy fabric so that it doesnt stress the seams too much Smiley

Lelax13, thanks for that information.  I still haven't gotten around to using this pattern, but someday I will and I'll keep your information in mind!

I have made view A and view D.  It was easy, as corsets go, but definitely make a size or two smaller if you want to be compressed at all.
I made it as a vest to wear with black pants, in my regular size, but took in the bust a little to get impressive cleavage. 
It's a fun pattern.

lelax13.. i thought of a question for you.  When you said you added 3 inches, how high on the corset did you add those inches???

i added the length at the place the pattern called the waistline... its on at least one of the pieces.  it keeps the top and bottom edges the same.  some of the side pieces that weren't marked took a little bit of guessing to figure out where the waistline was, but all the times ive done it, its worked.  another idea would be to make it as is out of muslin, put it on, and mark a line around from where the pattern said the waistline was.

That's what I would figure.. at the waistline, but who knows!!  Thanks for the information.. I've got extra muslin lying around, so maybe I'll try that route.
