So I've been looking around and cannot find a pattern for a corset. Well, a corset with a sweetheart neckline that laces in the back. which i want to also add a poofy tulle skirt to it to make it into a dress. Also, I have never added boning to something before and would like some tips for that as well. Could someone help me?
The dress I'm trying to make was inspired by the movie black swan and I want to add faux feathers all on the corset top to make it a bit more decorative. could anyone help me find a pattern and with boning tips?

A corset is actually pretty simple to make If you know the basic's of sewing. Umm theres something on youtube that tells you how to design your own corset along with how to make it.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3Qv3YGApyQ&feature=related
I think she also explains how to put in boning, Im not sure sorry >_< there is also a page that I found a while back that tells you how to draft your own pattern and sew together your corset, Her explanations a bit confusing if you dont read ahead first
Hope that helped at least a little. ^_^

^.^ desire to be you ^.^

If making a pattern for yourself doesn't work, I used this pattern for a corset once: http://voguepatterns.mccall.com/v2810-products-317.php?page_id=943 .  It worked well; just make sure you go by your finished measurements when cutting out, rather than the measurements they say on the pre-finished sizes.

They have DVD classes. If you are doing a real fitted corset and haven't made one before (especially if you have curves), I highly suggest taking it slow. I tried to rush into a full corset and ended up having to have a professional rebuild it with me. Simplicity and the like have corset patterns, but I found that they miss steps and often try to cover too many sizes at once.

This is the pattern I used for my daughter's "Corpse Bride" costume. It was pretty easy to follow. Cheesy I had never done boning and it was a breeze.
