  I love the methods you're showing about making one of these. Thank you so much for sharing your research. I've been wanting to make one tor years. I wonder how it will respond to corseting. Or do you think you'd need to make the form over the corseted model?

Thank you!

  I'm so pleased that you have found it helpful! My form is very firm and won't compress inside a corset, so if you want more dramatic proportions on your final form then you will need to tape over a corseted waist. I'm planning to do something similar using the fabric mannequin shown in my previous article. I'm thinking of making it in papier mache so that I can finish the outside beautifully and us it for shows;)

I've wondered the same thing. My <ahem> mature bosom is in a much different location wearing a "well fitting bra" than it is in a Regency or 18th c corset! If the modelling material were squishy (as a soft foam would be) this wouldn't present the problem of "lift" that a firm molded material does. This has been enough to put me off making a form - I don't really want to make a different one for every century!
