    The boning was probably the easiest part for me. It was the dynamics of drafting that threw me for a loop – it is constantly crossing back and forth across the fine line of engineering and art. It was difficult for me to realize what HAD to be by the numbers and what could be left up to artistic interpretation. I went about learning it completely backwards but now I feel like I have a starting point to learn how to build any corset and now with my fundamental knowledge – when I make a mistake I can most likely know how to fix it without wasting yards and yards of fabric!!! Thanks for the many kind compliment!
