My first Corset

So I started a project a lot of months ago that i finally finished today! My first corset.  I found a few websites that helped me write my own pattern.. basically you take all of your measurements draw a box, divide it into 6 columns, figure out how many inches of reduction you want in your waist, divide that by 6 and subtract that from each column measurement....Your not really supposed to understand how that works because i suck at explaining but if anyone has questions feel free to contact me. 

Anyway heres the procces... 

I found it was easiest to open a paper bag to draw the pattern on, cut them out and then trace them onto fabric.

Then i cut out each panel and sew them together. ( Do this twice )

When you get ready to sew them all together line them up with the numbers like this

1 2 3  4 5 6 6 5 4 3 2 1 

I sewed 2 of the same and then it was bad. Anyway Im missing pictures for the next few steps. So heres the outcome.

If any of you have ever tried to put a corset on yourself you will know how hard it is.... and in doing so i realized it can be worn 2 ways.


So which way is better?

    I like the laces in the back better. Don't tie it too tight. I don't want you passing out on your fainting couch.
