About the Course

There is no corset like the Elizabethan gusseted corset to pinch in the waistline, reducing by up to seven inches! This style is particularly suited to the larger bustline from DD to K cup.

Come along and to make a fully fitted, boned, lined, and back-laced corset in a material of your choice, in my informative weekend workshops.
The corset provides excellent support and bodyshaping. These corsets are created to be worn as outer or under garments and can reduce your waistline by up to 5 to 7 inches. I encourage all sizes from XXS to XXXL plus. Nobody is too large or too small.

Over the two day workshop you will create an Elizabethan style corset with bust and hip gussets.

For this workshop you will need to be confident using a sewing machine and have made a garment before. I will provide the paper pattern and structuring materials, these are based on patterns styled and inspired from the Elizabethan era and I am happy to adapt sizing to suit your shape and measurements.
These corsets are beautifully constructed using 3 layers, a top layer, an interlining and traditional cotton Coutil. They contain a steel spoon busk to fasten the front, have 4 steel supports to slot into the back and also contain 14-18 steel flexible spirals bones for long life and comfort.

Not only will you leave the workshop with your own corset after the weekend* but also pleasing and more detailed sewing skills. This is an admired craft and easy to manage, and indeed inspiring for those of you who are more confident stitchers.
