Thankyou very much :)
I would say that it is generally better/easier to take up corsetry if you have some sewing experience already. So if you have none at all it might help to try some smaller projects first. However if you just want to go for it there are some books which might help:

Jill Salen's "Corsets"
Norah Waugh's "Corsets and Crinolines"
- these are very much historically orientated.

There is a really good website also:

- this is a more modern guide on how to produce corsets.

Hope this helps! :)

I'm so glad you use spring steel. It gives a much more flattering line than spiral, in my opinion.

Definately! Flat steels are my preference :)

WOW! This is amazing! What a beautiful piece...I'd love to make something like this but it looks ridicliously difficult.

Not that it looks like you had any problems with this because it's so beautiful! :)

How long did it take to finish?

Thankyou very much. It took somewhere between 8-10 hours I think. Corsetry is a bit of a learning curve but it's so much fun plus you can be really creative when decorating it. :)
