This corset was created by using a pattern that fitted to my personal measurements. I used a silver satin and a black polka dot mesh to make my corset from. The skills that go into creating a corset include backing outer fabric onto coutil, fitting the corset to the body, stitching in boning channels and inserting steel bones, inserting a busk, putting in eyelets and lacing, binding the edges and adding any trimmings.
