This is absolutely BRILLIANT, thank you so much for such fantastic inspiration! I am in the midst of working on a Morrigan themed corset for a friend, and this is perfect timing.
Just had a flash for perhaps attempting a breast form from medical tape in similar fashion to this, and then making a seamless (or nearly?) cup by steam-shrinking, rather like shaping darts on a wool blazer. Hmm.
Thank you! I'm so happy to hear that my article helps people to realize their own designs. :) The idea with steam-shrinking medical tape cups into shape sounds very interesting. Please do keep us posted, in case you give it a try. (Nearly) seamless cups would be a wonderful achievement!
Thank you Barbara - I LOVE you for this article!!! Oh, the de-mystification!! !
And thank YOU for the positive feedback! It always makes me happy, if my articles are well received by fellow corsetmakers.
Brilliant - I'm always excited to read one of your articles, well written and easy to understand with great photos! Many thanks!!
Many thanks, Suzanne! I always try my best to find the right words and to take clear and easy to understand pictures for my articles. That takes a lot of time, but is worth every minute of it, once I read the positive feedback here. :)
These are very good instructions! Could you tell me where you got your original over bust pattern from? Thanks!
Thank you! I constructed the original overbust pattern from scratch, as I do for all of my patterns.
