This is the over bust corset that I made for my little sister to wear under her Sakura gown (previous post). I used the Truly Victorian corset pattern to make this, and it is a pattern that I both adore and recommend to other people thinking of trying their hand at corset making. Its amazingly simple to put together, has a very wide range of sizes, and fits wonderfully.
This was made with two layers of white twill, and 12 "1/2 inch" bones, and a metal busk. There are 20 grommets in the back for lacing. The edges were finished in bias tape that was hand stitched down to the lining. This corset is fully supportive. My sister used this in place of any other sort of under garment for her off-the-shoulder ballgown, but it could be worn as a stand a lone top as well.
This was the first time I'd ever used a busk in a corset before, and it was a real learning curve. I love the look it gives the corset though, and really, once I got the hang of it, the whole thing went in surprisingly easy. This, I can tell, is just going to be the first of many corsets that I make.
