aahhh, thanks!! Cheesy  never even thought of using bias tape...I need to fix my corset anyway, my lack of bust makes the corset puff out in odd places...

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

Yes, bias tape is what I have used to. I sewed it on to the right side first, folded it over and hand sewed it on the inside so that there would be no visible seam. Hand sewing also makes it a bit easier to shape the bias tape around the straps.

It says

Remember to add sewing-allowance to the pattern pieces before they are cut. 1 cm all around, 4 cm at center back. The corset will tighten the waist 4 cm

I added 1 1/2 cm at each seam and nothing at top and bottom (since I used bias tape there). Since it automatically takes away 4 cm I really don't know why yours ended up too big.

this is a great pattern, thanks for the link annamaria! and i love yours, so professional looking.. and of course the stripes... i was just wondering, does anyone think it would be okay to use plastic boning insteead of steel? i have an average sized bust, and i'm plus sized. i've never made a corset before so i'm not really sure if there's a huge difference. also, where can i buy boning? i was thinking joanne's or someplace similar but i haven't had a chance to check yet. thanks in advance, and again, great job on your corset.

sexy_penguin - I wouldn't reccomend plastic boning. The plastic boning I've come across will not give you the same support as steel boning. And plastic has a tendency to bend in more than one place. I always buy my corset stuff online. http://www.farthingales.on.ca is one place worth a look.
