Corsetmaking II: The Overbust Corset
April 12, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Friday evenings 12, 19 April, 3, 10 & 17 May (5 sessions) 6 – 8:30pm. No class Friday 26 April
Now that you have mastered the fundamentals of corsetmaking with a perfectly fitted underbust corset, move on to the next level and tackle the trickier overbust corset.
In this class we’ll build on the skills you learned in Intro to Corsetmaking to fit and sew your own customised overbust corset. Like the Underbust Corset this one will have a front busk and back lacing, but will incorporate more advanced fitting, new construction techniques, and more opportunities to alter the design to your own taste.
This class is limited only to those who have taken Intro to Corsetmaking: The Underbust Corset
Materials: Students will need to supply fabric and thread for their corset (suggestions for suitable fabric will be provided). There is also a charge for the specialist corset findings of $85 that includes all other materials needed.
Cost: $170 for five sessions + $80 kit fee = $250 total
