Did you use boning in your corset? If so what kind of boning do you think would be most affordable and effective?

If someone could explain 4 and 5 in a easier way to understand that would be amazing!

You are a bloody life saver. I'm cosplaying Elsa and need it done in six weeks, so I didn't have time to wait for a pattern to arrive. Then I found this, and you may well have saved my entire outfit from being a empire dress. Thank you!

If your bust length and hip length are different, would you end up with a trapezoid shape in the beginning, before you divide it into the number of panels you want? or would you go with either the hip or bust length, but not both?
KellaxProductions's avatar
go with whatever is the largest.  then you'll divide the panels with in that for the rest

Would this work for an underbust corset as well?
KellaxProductions's avatar
Yes it would. You would just have to adjust the length but the construction will be the same

That was the most helpful tutorial i have ever read! No Joke. I went though like fifteen before I found yours and NO ONE told me how to get the darts made for each panel. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I'm going to get crafting right now.

In step 3 which one do you divide by 5, the bust or hip measurement? and where does all the extra space come from?
KellaxProductions's avatar
first i divide the bust and hip by five and connect them with straight lines as you see in the 3rd step (my bust and hips were the same measurement.) if they aren't i suggest taking your biggest measurement (either your bust or hip) and dividing it by five and drawing straight lines down like step 3. then in step 5 i divide the remaining measurements by five as well. these measurements should be much smaller than your bust or hips and thats where all the space comes from in the pattern. and follow the instruction on placement of the smaller measurements as shown in step 5. does that clarify?
