I really appreciate this article!!!! I am currently at the beginning stages with my very first long distance client and communicating styles and options in this way is invaluable. Thank you so much and I look forward to your next article.
Thank you all for the lovely comments! Once you've mastered the basic skill set, be sure to check out the next installment for fancy finishing touches and corset details (binding, busk, various types of channels, etc): http://www.foundationsrevealed.com/corsetry/business/327-advanced-flats-for-corsetieres
Welp, I do love this article, however, I'm just learning Illustrator, so it's actually taking some time to figure out the pen tool, handles, anchor points, etc. I'm determined to "get" this though, so your tutorial is awesome. Can't wait to learn enough on this one to be able to move on to the advanced flats tutorial! Have a feeling that this process will be a real timesaver rather than sketching out designs each time. Wish me luck!
Thank you so much for this article. I have adapted it somewhat (I dont have illustrator, only Serif Craft Artist) but I am happy to say I have just completed my first basic flat :) This is definetly a skill I want to continue developing
