That's a nice fabric pattern.

DUDE! I remember those fashion plate things! They were the shiznit! Mine weren't Barbie, they were some generic thing, but I loved them. I could color and color for hours on them.

To answer CTM's question... just go to Home Depot and look for them, they come in a bag marked "cable ties." I BELIEVE you have the right thing in mind, but I'm not sure.

I think they probably come in different widths/thicknesses, because housebuilders would need bigger cable ties than your average person stringing cable through their living room... I think... but I do know plenty of people who have used them, and they seemed pretty happy.

I need to check out that corset generator!

I HAVE heard of people having metal boning rust, but those corsets were washed. If you don't intend to wash yours, shouldn't be a problem.

I'm surprised no one mentioned cable ties. You can get them from your local hardware store or home depot, and quite a few people I know aroudn here prefer them over any other kind of boning.

Thanks! It took about a month with me working maybe... three hours a week?

I hope to see more anime costumes around here... this place needs them.

And yes, the links have been somewhat sporadic lately. You could try finding it on the main webpage:

'Ello. Being new and all, I thought I'd drop by and drop off a picture of a recent anime costume I did. The character is Zefiris from the Scrapped Princess (not licenesed yet in the US far as I know).

I did this costume because I wanted to be challenged by trying to make those shoulder pads. Links included because I don't want to steal bandwidth from the sites hosting these pictures.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the major problem with vintage patterns yet: vintage people were a lot smaller than modern people. That's why it's a good thing that you checked the actual finished meaurements instead of choosing the size you are by modern standards.

I love vintage patterns myself, but they're usually in such horrible shape.

For those of you who are into anime costuming, here's a little interesting bit: Morpheus' coat from the Matrix line of costumes (Simplicity) makes an excellent pattern for Vash the Stampede from Trigun's coat. The front and back chest panels merely need to be made longer and more triangular, and the bottom of the coat finished on the edges rather than sewn together. Then add one center flap (I attached mine with velcro because who wants to button 30 or more buttons by hand) and you're done.

Have you perhaps considered adding lots of tulle (spelling?) underneath the skirt if you can't afford a crinoline?
