The corset is a wonderful garment to wear giving you a fabulous hour-glass 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,
We will look at construction, boning techniques & inserting a busk.
