Intro to Corsetmaking – Basic Underbust Corset

September 20, 2012 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 6:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until September 27, 2012


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.

Suitable for those with intermediate and higher sewing experience. 

Materials: Students will need to bring the supply for their corset (suggestions for suitable fabric will be provided).  There is also a charge for a corset finding kit. All other materials are included as part of the kit.

Your course fee pays for all three nights of this class: September 20th, September 27th, and October 4th.

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.
