Learn the fundamentals of corsetmaking with a perfectly fitted underbust corset. While corsets look complicated, a few simple tricks will de-mystify the process This course will cover every step of the process from choosing your fabric, busk, and boning types; to fitting and altering your pattern; to setting the busk; getting the boning channels to look perfectly even on the outside and inside of the corset; inserting your eyelets; and binding the edges. Plus, we’ll look at adding Steampunk flair to your corset in the build-up to Aethercon 2012.
