Costume Construction and Finishing Event

Event Objectives
By the end of the class, students will be able to draft a custom, late 1880s corset pattern and refine their pattern through making and fitting a mock-up.

Course Summary
In this two-day course, you will learn to draft a custom 1880s corset pattern from your own measurements and construct a mock-up of your corset pattern to further refine its shape and fit. You will also learn basic construction techniques unique to Victorian corsetry, such as busk insertion and shaping synthetic baleen bones.

Requirement
No prior experience making corsets is required to take this course, but intermediate machine sewing and garment construction knowledge are necessary.

What we will do
· Draft a custom late Victorian corset pattern based on your measurements for a comfortable corset that fits like a glove.

· Master the fundamentals of corset construction such as busk insertion, grometting, and shaping synthetic baleen.

· Learn to tackle tricky corset fitting problems like grain correction and panel shape manipulation.
