Thanks for the suggestions Sealion.  Sadly, I didn't see any patterns with straps at either place.  :(

Maybe what I'm after is actually a modern pattern?  I'll find a picture so you can see what I'm after.

View A/B is the kind of thing I'm after.

This pattern isn't a corset, but with some modifying I think I can make it one.  Unless anyone knows where I can get an actual corset pattern that has this style, I think I'm going to pick up this pattern and work from there.

I have just started a sewing blog and made my first post on a dress that I've been trying to get back around to finishing for a while now.  If anyone wants to check it out, I'd love to get input. :)  I'll probably be doing both mundane and faire projects on the one blog, but I may create a separate blog for garb stuff.

Has anyone seen a "Twilight" (from the movie) print of ANY sort?  I want to make a set of scrubs for a friend.  I haven't seen it at any of the local fabric stores, and don't see it online anywhere.

It looks like page 5 has some corsets like what you are thinking of. Hope this helps.

anybody know where i can get bullet-shaped metal beads? they should be hollow or at least not to heavy, since I'm intending to make earrings...

It is kind of strange watching your personal history become costume.

I love working with some of my actresses.  As long as their puppies noses are covered, and the girls are supported they are up for anything.  Funny enough, she drew the neckline on the mock up where she wanted it.  Oh and her husband asked if they could buy the costume after the show.  I don't know what she will do with it .... ::)

Actually the whole outfit is just an altered basic butterick block pattern.  If I posted all the stuff I've made in the past year that was NOT ren related I'd crash the site.  I have to say this is one of my faves so far.  She is just so ....cute.

This is what I have been up to for the past month.  I learned how much a pain that pleather is to work with but I ALSO found out how fun it is as well. 
I think they turned out well. Don't you?  ;D

Just completed this little satin bolero to go with my younger sister's Senior Class Presentation dress.  The school is strict on dress regulations (neckline, shoulder strap width, etc) and her dress is spaghetti strap.  So she talked me into making this for her lol.

Does anyone know of a good source for TALL children's patterns?? I can't find pants for my tall and skinny 5 year old son. He is a stick with no hips to hold up his pants.And we can't find pants with the waist small enough to fit but that fit thru the groin. If we were an adult I would say that he is long waisted as well as long legged, but they don't seem to make kids clothes for that. His current pants all ride so far below the waist that everyday I wait for a call from the school about them. And the last time I looked for patterns locally the waist measurement matched toddler sizes...which would be way too small....
Thanks,
Ann
