Intro to Corsetmaking – Basic Underbust Corset

February 28, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

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.

Suitable for those with intermediate and higher sewing experience. 

Cost: $145 for four sessions

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 $65 that includes all other materials needed.

Your course fee pays for all four nights of this class: Feb 28th, March 7th, March 14th, and March 21st.  

IMPORTANT: We expect this class to be very popular, and there will be limited spaces. Please confirm your registration with payment ASAP. Learn more about this class here at The Dreamstress’ blog.

This class is a prerequisite to the Advanced Corsetmaking – the Overbust Corset which will be offered later in March.
