okay so i purchased like 15 patterns for 45 cents today
this is one of them
i was thinking i could make a corset out of that top, i also used the pattern generator
i bought a yard of fabric
and 3 yards of boning is that enough or do i need to make another trip to wal mart?
the center of my corset is 17 inches if that helps
\im just really not sure where to insert the boning

I'm not necessarily sure that's the best pattern to base a corset off of if it's not something you've done before...

but usually the easiest place to put boning is on either side of each of the seams.

How much boning also depends on how much you are relying on it for support.  Something that is mainly for show won't need as much as something you are using for support/waist training/boobage lifting/etc.
