  Did you make your own bone casings (black in the pics) or by pre made?

  I used twill tape for this particular corset. Normally I make my own from coutil but because this was constructed with two layers of coutil I thought it would end up too bulky if I used them on this. (The way I make my casings it would have meant 4 layers of coutil including the casings, and 6 layers in the places where they go over over the seams.)

  I find that the bust problem where it gapes at the sides or back but is too small in the front of the bust is usually either a kind of negative swayback problem (the corset ribcage shape is tilted farther back than yours is)or a distribution problem (take the extra out of the back/sides as wedges and add the same amount to the front bust). :)

  It is gorgeous!! I LOVE the fabric! The seam lines are beautiful, I agree - I'm about to attempt an Edwardian (I usually stick to Victorian) and having read your article I'm really excited to get started now!!! Thanks for sharing
