Create Your Own Custom Corset
In my personal one-on-one classes we will be building a classic underbust corset from scratch. Your skills as a corset maker will improve as you embark on this sewing journey. I will personally teach you how to create a custom fit corset that will flatter your figure and save you lots of time and frustration.
To begin we will learn about the various silhouettes available for your design, take proper measurements, draft the pattern, pick out fabrics and structural tools for this slimming garment. We will go over fitting adjustments and finishing techniques within a two day period. Are you ready to give corsetry creation a try? Sign up for more information and to schedule your private Corsetry Creation class.
Who is this class for?
For those who are already comfortable with the intermediate sewing level with a home or industrial sewing machine and have made at least a few projects successfully. This is not an entry level sewing course. You must be prepared to thread bang on your own portable sewing machine.
What will I learn?
You will be taught how to take proper measurements and create a corset pattern based on your silhouette objective. Under my guidance, you will fit and alter your muslin mockup. The class will cover grain, cut, stitching techniques and boning channel creation. We will cover how to apply grommets and eyelets, use of an awl vs. cutter tools. I will teach you how to insert a two-piece busk fastener or a zipper with a placket to protect the skin from the zipper teeth. Ooouch!!
Bias binding, cut and sewing techniques will be covered as well. I will include a litany of information to cover and follow up on for homework to include, pattern, PDFs, supplier sources, online tutorials and review of my some of my esteemed corset book collections.
How much are the private lessons?
Private corsetry creation classes are $475 for two days of undivided one-on-one instruction. There is lunch provided for the two days along with the specialist tools at the studio space will be available for use.
