Coming up this Saturday & next Sunday I have a corset class planned.
The corset is a wonderful garment giving you a fabulous hourglass shape and can take inches off your waist! Originally designed and worn by the Victorians as underwear, this garment has come right up to date and is now worn as outerwear.
On this two-day workshop you will work with a Victorian corset pattern c1890. From a toile altered to fit, through to your finished corset. You will look at materials, construction, boning techniques, inserting a busk and finishing techniques.
NB. You will have the opportunity to cover your corset in a fabric of your choice if you so wish. Silk dupion type fabrics are ideal. You may bring your own fabric or purchase from me on the day.
Recommended Abilities: Must have confident sewing skills, able to work reasonably quickly and accurately.
A complex garment; this course runs over two days with a gap in between to allow you to do home work at your own pace.
Day 1: Saturday 8th Oct 10.30-4.30pm Day 2: Sunday 16th 11-5pm
Get on touch if you would like to come along.
