WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR?

This is an introductory course for those wishing to learn all the basics of corset making including body measurements and fitting, pattern cutting for corsets and corset construction methods and finishing techniques.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

To begin the workshop, we will spend time discussing the different types of corsets and how a corset works. We will look at appropriate fabrics for corsetry, different methods of construction and corsetry hardware.  We will then take body measurements and make a plan. Using the bodice block we will create a pattern and manipulate the pattern to achieve a personal fit.  You will then make a toile from calico up in a shape that will be fitted to your individual figure. Then using a suitable fabric of your choice you’ll go onto make a corset for yourself to take home with.

The course will include:
•    Tracing, marking and cutting the corset pattern, with notes on fit and alteration
•    Making a toile to check for perfect fit

New dates coming soon. If you need any assistance, please get in touch.
