I have that book! im currently using it in my couture sewing class! among like 10 others lol i think i took all the couture books from the library! but we had to make a foundation garment to put in between the self and the lining cus we were all making strapless dresses and ive been on this for 5 weeks now and barely got the bias mockup to fit properly....
so another thing u have to be concerned with it proper fit, and as mentioned above the pattern u have isn't a corset per say.
a corset literally changes your shape, while a bustier is corset like in appearance but doesnt necessarily change ur body shape. lots of people have come to refer to bustiers as corsets simply because they have bones and lace up at the back but a real corset is so much more than that
