step how to do a corset, as well as other wonderfull things. I
didn't have anyone to lead me through it (this was back in the mid
1980s)but my cousin and I did ours with no problem. It has early
Tudor as well as Elizabethan.

well, I do have a copy of a copy. I'm thinking about getting a real
copy asap, but not this week. (our van died, and we have to pay the
downpayment on a newer one tommorrow morning.);-} There's a few
others I want to get a full copy of, too.
Oh- I did a no-brainer on Brianna's corset. I forgot she needed the
waist to be the same as the full size, and need to add a couple of
inches to the 3/4 scale one. (I'm trying to practice on hers, as it
takes so much less fabric.) With how small the finished measurements
on the real one are, I wonder how old the wearer actually was.
