Event description

Description

This one day class will introduce you to various structured bodice techniques, including boning, it will introduce various materials and methods involved in this art, and will encourage further exploration of corset technique.

A 'corset belt', or 'waspie' is a simple introduction to the art of using structure in your sewing and dressmaking and will empower you to progess to the next level of historic, or more advanced designs, whether for costume or fashion.

You will cut make and trim make and take home your own stylish corset belt - to wear over shirts or blouses ..or as a costume accessory.

Your tutor Emily Spreadborough is a BA hons qualified Costumier.


- you will use Rigelene to fortify a fitted bodice cut and made with a fabric of your choice ( or use one of our range.)

- you will edge the corset belt by binding with bias tape (shop bought or self made)

- you will finsh the centre front opening with metal eyelets and lace up with ribbon or cord.

****You will need 1m of non stretch fabric, or you can purchase some on the day (from £5 per m)

ALL other equipment and materials provided.

Our contemporary, fully equipped studio is located in Wood St in Liverpool City Centre and trains, buses and parking within a couple of minutes away.

NOTES (please read!)

This is an INTERMEDIATE class for fairly confident sewers who have used a pattern before, and it is not suitable for absolute beginners.

****this is not an authentic historic repro/lingerie class****

** we cannot guarantee you will complete the belt as it will depend on your own experince and pace of work . a confident intermediate sewist will finish the corset in 6 hours.

**there will be a break for lunch and plenty of opportunity for tea and discussion with your tutor.

**we only have 6 students per class so guarantee individual attention.

Please message with any queries. Please like and share our facebook page @Fabrication ...and read our glowing reviews.

Many Thanks,

The Fabrication Team.
