Either has multiple fitting panels, spiral steel boning, front busk closure, waist stay, back lacing closure and bias bound edges. Add flossing and decorative details if time allows.

Corset supplies would cost about $70-85 for pattern, boning, busk, grommets, lacing, small notions, coutil and fashion fabric. This depends on size, style, and fashion fabric chosen.
