      I think that one gets me down to about 22 inches. It’s a steel boned corset with a MDF panel put in the front for the cogs to mount on. I just made the pattern myself, though I read up a lot on http://corsetmakers.livejournal.com/ before hand. They have some really helpful advice.

      My advice to anyone getting into costumes is just to practice! You can have some skill before hand, but what really makes a good costume maker is just someone with a lot of experience.
