I've made this corset with this free pattern http://www.dtta.dk/x/intro_uk.htm (thank you Krinil for posting that link!).

 
are there anymore sites you know of like the one you posted for making your own patterns??

If you want one where  you just fill in your measurements there's http://costume.dm.net/ - look under Custom Corset Pattern Generator.

http://www.softcom.net/users/unicorn/corset.htm has an instruction for making a pattern for a Victorian corset.

Fabulous  Cheesy Aren't corsets just the best things to make? I'm slowly making more to add to my collection...

I just saw this thread and I have to say this is my fave corset to date, I love stripes as well and I have 5 yards of a deep purple and black striped cotton that I was going to make some knickers with, but maybe now I will make a corset. My only worry is being of the big busted persuasion I might look overly top heavy. I am curious if you need help putting it on? And did you use any kind of busk in the front? And did you use dressmaking grommets or a more heavy duty type grommet?

Actually, the Elizabethan corset was made to flatten the chest, which is what I found out when I made this corset!  Problem is, I have a tiny wee bust so it made it look pretty much non-existant!

If you lace it from top to bottom it will be easier for you to put it on yourself.

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

I didn't use a busk in this corset. It got two pieces of boning center front. No opening in the front makes it a bit difficult to put on but even harder to take off Smiley I have no problem tightening the laces by myself though.

annamaria, I have one question about your awesome corset...when I was adding the ribbon around the edges, it looks really really bad when I put it around the straps...I used gros grain ribbon...Am I using the wrong stuff?  Is there a secret to wrapping it around corners?  Cos your corners look fab, and it's getting me kinda miffed!

Ive got to be the most accident prone girl on earth.Well Ive be talking on here for a while about my corset I am making.Well I get in the damned thing strut about ,sit stand  whatever.Try to get out and am stuck.Like so stuck I had to eventully cut out the front seam with a pair of nippers.Before I cut myself out I tried twisting and wriggling out.I strained my back and really hurt my self.I couldnt even use my right arm for 3 days. On a lighter note I looked fabulous in the corset.LOL.

Bubba - when I make corsets - I use bias binding and it goes round corners well.  You do need to be a bit careful if you get satin type as that frays a lot, but it does curve well
