    Thank you for the information about where to find a corest patter generator and other important information. I have not made one myself.. a little intimidated to be honest. But would love to and a long skirt. My boyfriend is taking me to Atlanta for New Years.. and we are supposed to be going somewhere elegant. Would love to be able to make something to wear. Looking into ideas, your costume you made this with is absolutely stunning..

    very impressive!

      Thanks sweetie :)

      I’ll see how I go with my next few corsets and see if I am game enough to take it on ;)

    This is gorgeous. You should add a tutorial or a pattern i would love to try this. I’ve added boning to garments but this would be a true test.

    Are there any sites i can get a basic corset pattern from?

      Thank you so much :)

      I don’t think I’d be brave enough to attempt teaching this to anyone else yet, as I’m only barely familiar with the process myself at the moment…

      I’d suggest you to ask more information from KateXXXXXX (see her comments below) as she seems to be far more familiar with sourcing/creating patterns using online tools :)

    Oh, I know it wasn’t a Burdastyle pattern. I’m just wondering which one you adapted. I’ve used Drea Lead’s Corset pattern generator, and I have the Margot Anderson one. I also have the Simplicity one, but I haven’t yet come across anyone who has a lot positive to say about that, so so far I haven’t done anything with it…. Seems to run large. I think there’s one in The Tudor Tailor as well… I’m in the middle of a comparison exercise using two different boning types for a couple using Drea’s generator.

      To be honest I don’t know what the base pattern for this was. They were supplied to us at the course and amended to fit our measurements.

      The boning is my own design.

      I tend to draw my patterns myself and I’m currently in progress of collating a small personal corsetry library to assist me in this.

      Sorry I can’t be more helpful :)

    Yay! You did it! I was waiting to see the inspirations that came from the course and it’s great!

    Excellent!

    Did you use a pattern for this one? If so, which pattern?

      I did not use a Burda pattern, as I attended a corsetry course and the pattern was a classic Tudor style corset pattern adapted to my measurements.

      Thanks sweetie :)

      I’m quite happy with the result myself. I’m not 100% sure the bow will stay, as I’m contemplating making a cameo-style detailing for the front…
