About the Course

Corset Making for beginners to intermediate. You will need to have used a sewing machine before.

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

Over the two day workshop you can opt to create an overbust corset or underbust style ‘waspie’ corset sometimes used as a cincer and can be used as a waist-training corset.

Only Basic sewing skills are required for these Workshops. I will provide the Paper pattern and structuring materials provided,these are based on original Victorian patterns 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 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 advanced sewing skills. This is an admired craft and easy to manage for the beginner and indeed inspiring for those of you who are more confidant stitchers.
