  2. Well unfortunatley i didn't take any photographs as i was going along and i doubt i will be making another one anytime soon, So i dont know how i would do a tutorial myself, but i used this tutorial as a basis for mine and then changed the shape a bit and added my own personal touches, http://farthingalescorsetmakingsupplies.com/tips.php?article=64
    Hope that helps

  5. one of the ways I did this was I took an oblong cotton lace table runner and dunked it into a bucket of white paint. then wile wet I shaped it and let it dry I then added wire to back and covered the back with a off white fabric , this is just a quick explanation more went into it. I also hot glued pears and stones.and a way to add and remove it from the dress. Wore it for 8 weeks of shows and it worked . I wish I could show you a pic.
