I used Jacci Jaye’s corset pattern to make a basic cincher. I followed all instructions as written and had absolutely no trouble with it (contrary to several of the comments on her wall). It just barely fits me as an Old Navy size 4, so this thing is pretty small. My next project will be to scale it up to a “Medium” to get closer lacing in the back.
The fashion fabric is from the printed end of a sari that a friend brought me from India (as I am quite pale and have few events to which I can legitimately wear a sari). The lining (or backing) fabric and bias tape around the top and bottom are duckcloth. I used heavy-duty grommets, spring steel bones for the front and back, spiral steel bones for the sides, and a standard 8" steel busk.
