A good guide, but...

This book contains useful patterns and tips for making modern versions of period corsets. However, these are by no means historically accurate, and they fail to take into account how corsets were used to alter the posture as well as restrict the waist.
It is a good book if you are looking for an easy to wear version of period dress and are not concerned with exact reproductions.
