    Very nice, mellu! I’ve included this as an “Example creation” in my fabrics international wiki article on cotton.

    @lauriana: I used both. The spiral steel in the normal tunnels, and on both side of the lacing I used flat steel.

    @keeleysews: Learning by doing ;) Make a mock-up and when you think it fits, start sewing. My first corset wans’t the best, but the more I made, the better they were.

    @antigone: No, I hadn’t problems. Size 10 is perfect for me.

    It looks great! Did you have any problems with the sizing? After I made mine it turned out to be a size and a half too small. I’m still not quite sure what happened……..at any rate, I like yours a lot! You did a great job!

    Beautiful, I’m trying to pluck up the courage to try a corset:) Do you have any advice?

    It’s great! It looks very well made and quite historically accurate. Did you use flat or spiral steel boning?
