In Halloween shopping we're reminded that corsets are damn expensive. Rightfully so, with all the magical construction that goes into them (we all want a tiny waist). If we can't shell out hundreds of dollars, maybe Linda Sparks' book, The Basics of Corset Building: A Handbook for Beginners ($20) can enlighten us. After surrendering ourselves to the craft of sewing we'd feel accomplished, and maybe have some extra 20s in our pockets (ch-ching) for a bar night.
