An excellent book that walks you through drafting a corset pattern. With a little patience and time, I found the steps easy to follow. I have very little pattern drafting experience, and I was still able to create one of the 18th century patterns without mishap.

Note: I have not yet used my pattern, so I can't attest to how well it will actually fit.

Thanks to this excellent book I managed to draw an absolutely perfect pattern for my size. I just finished my mock up, and I can assure you that the result is perfect. I had no previous experience drawing patterns, but the instructions are clear and easy to follow.
