Could you maybe do a tute for an overbust corset?

First, I have to thank you, Roethke, for this great tutorial. I wanted to make a corset since I discovered it years ago, but I wasn't able to find quality grommets for it in my city. Some months ago I moved to the capital of my country, and here I've found lots of nice shops full of nice things!! I finally found the perfect grommets on Monday... and two days later... here is my corset! I hope you like it ^^




This is my first corset and my second garment (I've just made some bags, cushions and a skirt before), so I'm really happy with the result. My hip is bigger than my chest, that's why it looks "smaller" on the bottom part, but the measurements were ok.

Thank you very much again for the tute... I'm looking forward to this weekend to wear my new zebra corset!! Cheesy

By the way, sorry if I make mistakes with my english, it's not my mother tongue Tongue

I wrote down all of your instructions and hope to start a mock-up of this project next week!

I like: Reading, good literature, old movies, sci fi, steampunk, Burton, Roller Derby, Owls, corsets, tattoos, Post Punk music, 1920s-30s,  etc.

So I'm planning on making one of these in the near future.  So I spent some time before recycle day searching for jugs and I can't find any, but what I did find were some of those flimsy plastic cutting boards, they come in packs of 5 in pretty colors and stuff.   

Now I'm wondering what the general consensus is on this idea. Maybe someone already tried it and it was an epic fail?  I WAS gonna read through all the other replies and see if anyone had already tried it, but theres like 37 pages and its also really early.

If no one knows I'll be posting pics of my attempt for sure, I am super excited anyway, I've only got two projects in line ahead of this one.

In this part of the world I have to import boning if I want to use it...so everytime I look at a store-bought corset and go "I'm sure mine would fit better" I quail before import duties. Now, with a plastic bottle, I will be armed and ready to try making my own Cheesy

I have made a couple corsets with your wonderful tutorial and messed with the original pattern, hope you dont mind
I tore apart an old formal dress I was never going to wear for the outside of the corset and used an old white bedsheet for the inside.
For some reason I had to add 4 panels (two on each side) to make it fit me but when my friend made one with me she had no problem with the modified version of the pattern.  
I also modified the pattern to be used for an overbust though I am still working out a few kinks...

(edit: I used the plastic strips used to bind stacks of newspaper together for boning http://www.mcmaster.com/#strapping-components/=dq37g7  cheap and easy to use)
Gorgeous!  I love the two tone corset.

Jesus, I just read through every page of this and I must say, I am super inspired to make my own. A few of my friends are insisting on taking me out to a fetish bar and I have practically nothing to wear... but now I will. Wink Thanks for the amazing tutorial, and for everyone here who put in their own two cents on how to modify it to best suit our individual style and materials on-hand. (Flexible cutting boards and trespassing signs? Genuis!) I will definitely post pics.... maybe I will even start on it tonight!

When you say sew the orange lines together, how do they become straight?
