  It looks like the bust is still a bit loose - is that intentional?

  Hi bookwyrm, yes sorry I should have included that my bust fluctuates quite a lot so I left in the extra space for personal preference :-)

  Thanks for bringing this corset patent to my attention, I'm starting work on my entry for the Your Wardrobe Unlock'd competition and this corset pattern is just perfect for it!

I found the whole set of articles really useful, but particularly this part as it helped me know what issues to look out for when drafting my pattern (I went for the old school grid and scaling method) and making my first toile.

Thanks once again for such an interesting and helpful set of articles.

  It's really interesting to see how different your toile looks from mine! We have significantly different body shapes, so this is expected, but still fascinating! Also to see the difference in the way people approach the project and reach their conclusion is really cool. Looking forward to your results!
