    Wow, that is awesome! I would like to learn how to make my own corsets. I love wearing them, but they are soo expensive to buy, I figure it would be better if I learned how to make my own. Was it difficult to create?

      Yeah it’s cheaper to make them yourself.
      It’s very fiddly and it hurts your hands, but it’s worth it. go to venacavadesign.com and you can get starter packs, patterns etc. :D then you can make your own :)
