  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!

  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.
