      I know I am really going out on a limb here but...has anybody sen the newest simplicity tudor for women patten....not too shabby!!!!actually is is in 2 patterns...one is outer clothing and one is underpinnings n such...but really , it does not suck considering the stuff that has come out before and the sizing is actually quite generous...I just made it for someone.and the  tudor corset alone really worked surprisingly well ..I actually had to cut the pattern down cause the muslin proved  the fit did not take into accont the squishing down that occurs when a real corsett does its job!!!lol

      <<< It's also a good idea to invest in good patterns from reputable
      e.g. Margo Anderson http://www.margospatterns.com/ & The Tudor Tailor
      http://www.tudortailor.com/tailorsshop.htm for 16th century (I'm sure
      are others for earlier periods) >>>

      Thanks for the suggested pattern sources. I will add them to this
      file. Perhaps the comments and reviews here might also help:

      <<< or learn how to create your own patterns the
      period way by draping fabric on a body (a duct tape double will come in
      handy if you want anything fitted) >>>
