Over the centuries, the corset has been a vital garment designed to support and shape the fashions of the day, and has progressed from being an undergarment to bold outerwear. This practical book explains the full process of making a corset with clear instruction and supporting photographs. Packed with information, it explores methods of creating modern corsets, whilst acknowledging the pioneering techniques of the past. Whatever your reason for creating a corset- be it for theatre- re-enactment or personal wear - this book is an invaluable guide to making a well-constructed, figure-flattering garment. Includes: a list of helpful tools, equipment and materials; step-by-step illustrated instructions showing how to self-draft or personalize a commercially purchased corset pattern; techniques showing how to correct an array of fitting issues to produce a well-shaped corset; a selection of corset-making methods, illustrated with photographs and, finally, imaginative approaches to decorating and personalising corsets. There are three main projects showing the development of the patterns and construction techniques to create gorgeous corsets. AUTHOR: Julie Collins Brealey is a fashion tutor, specialising in corset making, pattern cutting and bra making. Since studying fashion, she worked as a designer/pattern cutter in the lingerie industry and subsequently set up two small businesses - the first designing and making lingerie and the second sportswear. Having also worked as a freelance theatrical costume maker for the Bristol Old Vic, she now enjoys teaching an array of fashion subjects to small, intimate groups. 347 colour photographs
