corset help~

Hey guys,
So Im about to tackle this job but Im not sure what sort of corset this is:

From the pic you can tell, the back of it is small. I just need sort of a direction where to go since I got two weeks to work on it. I have a corset pattern with me but not sure which will help me draft a new one.
Link to the pattern I have:

Thanks for viewing this thread

I have actually played with that pattern before and can suggest using the front of C and the back of E. I would say use extra reinforcing along the sides and top to help it keep it shape and then instead of lacing it you could use the straps on the side to hold it together. I would say make a draft out of cheep fabric first and see if you like how it fits and you can fuss with it. Might sound like more work but it will save you tears later...

I can link you to the one I made off this pattern once I find all the photos.

Looks good to me and I already made a mock sample using both patterns you recommended me. It came out great and I think I will add a zipper at the back. I will still add the straps to make sure it stays in place. Thanks again, it really saved me a lot of stress and all!!
