Default Where do you start to learn how to make corsets?

Hi, I'm a newby and my only experience has been making dresses for young and old, trousers, the odd curtains and even a fully lined jacket with lapels and matching lined trousers. I am self taught so I have probably got a few bad habits I've picked up along the way, but things work out.
I want to try making corsets but really don't know where to start. I've searched on line for patterns and came across afew that interest me. I've never worked with boning and I don't even know what type of material to use.
If any of you can suggest a good starting point I'm eager to learn and will gladly take on board your expertise. The patterns on line look like a good starting point, but I'm not sure how detailed the instructions would be. Maybe there is a good book I can buy.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. x x x
