A corset-style green top. For White People Day (what my black friend calls St. Paddy's Day). I don't really need boning. Can I make it without boning? I just like the shape. Directions about a boning-less corset are COMPLETE gibberish to me from eHow.

Any of you sew-peoplez have a pattern you like or something? And is it reasonable to want to use a corset pattern and forget the boning?

Update: OR.....
