Step 1: Print Pattern
I've printed it out full size using the large format printer, then cut out each individual pattern piece.
Step 2: Clip Seam Allowances
Fold back each "tab" created by your clipping to the wrong side of your pattern piece.
Step 3: Match Up Seams, Join Using Tabs
Move up a little, then bring a tab from the opposite piece up to overlap the front of the other piece. Snug your edges up along the stitch line and tape the tab down. Continue alternating tabs and taping them down until you've come to the end of the seam. You don't need to pull every tab to the front; it's ok to skip a few. In the photo of the inside, you can see I skipped lots of tabs.
Continue adding pieces in this manner. You'll slowly see your corset start to take shape! Once you've got it all together, it's time to test it out and correct errors.
Step 4: Test Your Paper Mockup
First off, much to my surprise all of the tops and bottoms of each piece meet correctly. I had assumed that since I'd altered the pattern a bit I'd have to true the seams, but this paper mock up shows me that I won't have too. Less work already!
It looks like the corset may be a bit big at the top and bottom edges, but I believe most of that gaping comes from the fact that this is an S-curve corset modeled over a straight Victorian one. Sure enough, holding the paper mockup against my body while standing in the proper posture shows that the sizing is about right. Of course, I can't pull it tight 'cause it's just paper, but it looks like when the corset is fully laced the gaps will disapear. I'll tweak the fit further with a fabric mock up.
The top and bottom lines of the corset are pretty smooth and hit where I want, except at the top back. The two back pieces meet in an awkward point, so I'll want to smooth the line there.
Most importantly, I discovered that my waistline and grain lines were off! I guessed at these back when I was creating the pattern, and my guess has the waistline rising strangely from the side to the front, when it should be level all around. I've marked the bad waistline in green, and I've drawn the corrected waistline in red. I'll transfer the new waistline to my pattern, and adjust the grain of each piece so that it is perpendicular to that new line.
Once you've gone back to your pattern and make your corrections, you can move on to your first fabric mockup knowing that many of the big kinks will already have been worked out!
