About the Course

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 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.

You’ll leave with a completed corset, corset pattern and the skills, knowledge and notes to create more.
