This practical course is for anyone who has a personal or professional interest in fashion, vintage dressmaking or costume who would like to develop the knowledge and skills needed to produce their own made-to-measure corsets.
The course will begin with a number of structured technical classes.
As it progresses you will then be able to work on a more personal project, reflecting your style and interests.
On this course you will:
- learn how to construct and fit a corset
- put in a centre front busk
- add eyelet fastening to the back
- work with artificial whale bone (which is the closest mimic to real whale bone) and see how this can be combined with both steel spiral and flexi steel bones to create a perfect fit.
Examples of the finished project will be available as a visual aid, and demonstrations of the various processes shown throughout.
Basic machine and hand sewing skills are important prerequisites.
Beginners are very welcome, and for those who might progress quickly then some advanced techniques will also be explored.
What will I gain?
You’ll leave with a completed corset, corset pattern and the skills, knowledge and notes to create more.
