Corset Tutorial. by PestilentialCreature Corset Tutorial. by PestilentialCreature
YES, I do commissions!

I've always wanted to make a tutorial about something and a few people have asked me how I make my corsets, so here's my corset tutorial.

I made this corset for my Pre-20th Century Masquerade, which was for my birthday last week. I spent alot of time on the corset, but it was the quickest one I've made. I also made a matching mask with the same blue. I think I spent 2 weeks on it, for a few hours each day. And yes, I took alot of shortcuts. I'm sorry if I skipped some major steps, Step 3, 4 and 5 are very confusing but if anyone doesn't understand, please ask.

If anyone would like a custom-made corset for themselves, I'd be glad to make some for a price. And also I usually put in alot more effort than the corset in this tutorial. I am ALWAYS open for commissions, if you're interested send me a note. And ofcourse it's not cheap as it may take weeks to make one. The price usually ranges between $140 and $200 depending on what materials you want, how many panels you want, what purpose it's for (tight-lacing usually has more boning), the size of your waist (I do all sizes) and most importantly, if you want overbust or underbust. Overbust is alot more complicated.
To give you a better idea of how much it will cost, send me a note with basic details on how you want one.

Thanks for viewing and please credit my tutorial if you use it, I'd also love to see what other make out of it. But please treat this like any stock you would use. A link to my page in your details and please send me a note or message if you have used this. Out of all the favourites, views and messages I have recieved, I have NOT had one person shown me a finished product from this tutorial. Please respect my efforts.

By the way, comments/criticism would be nice.

So I have had many people ask me how to make a drafting pattern tutorial. I don't want to give away all my "secrets", yes, i know its selfish, but I would rather do commissions. But I guess I have not had any corset commissions in about a year so theres no loss.
