Book Description

30 July 2012
The corset is sexy, versatile, funky, and timeless. Wear one as underwear, or outerwear, with jeans, a dress, or trousers, or keep it strictly in the bedroom. Making a corset is fun! It can be plain or fabulous, and tailored to a specific outfit or occasion. As a bespoke corset is beyond the pocket of most people, the only way to achieve a good fit and comfort is to make one yourself. Happily, unlike many items of couture clothing, making a corset isn't as difficult as it may seem. If you can sew a straight line, you can 'build' a corset. If you have never made a corset, but are comfortable behind a sewing machine, this ebook with video demonstrations is for you. Julia Bremble passes on the most practical methods of corset building built up through years of making and research. She gives a good grounding of basic corset skills for beginners, and a source of inspiration, from where you can explore more innovative creations. Her professional techniques tips and tricks will help you create a polished result from a commercial pattern. You are on the way to making your first beautiful corset!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for beginners and the more experienced 1 Aug 2012
If only this had existed when I made my first corset! I would have been able to avoid so many mistakes (costly mistakes!) as this book covers all the essential information you would need to make a quality corset.

My favourite section covers turn of cloth and roll pinning. If you want to make a smooth corset, this section is essential. I have tried to use roll pinning in the past but with limited success. I now understand how to make it work which for me is worth the price of the book alone!

A perfect book for beginners and great information for the more experienced too. Save yourself some costly mistakes and get this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant guide to corset making 1 Aug 2012
By Sewing Directory TOP 500 REVIEWER
I have been eagerly awaiting this e-book ever since I heard Julia was writing it. This book is an illustrative guide to making a Victorian style corset, ideal for those who have never made a corset before. It starts off with a brief history of corsets and a discussion of the essential tools & equipment as well as tips on fitting.

The book contains step by step instructions for each stage of making the corset, from measuring and building the framework to binding and embellishing the finished corset. There are many photos and very useful embedded video clips demonstrating the techniquHow to make a corset Rainbow Diskses you will need to make the corset (including various seam techniques, making bone casings and channels, embellishments etc).

There are 2 projects at the end of the book - making a single layer corset and making a double layer corset (for more experienced corset makers). The great thing about the format of the book is that in the instructions for making the corsets there are hyper links back to the relevant guides, techniques or video clips to help you along the way.

There is a wealth of information in this book, if you have ever considered making a corset this is the book for you.

Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I've been making corsets, self-taught, for years now and I've collected all the instructional corsetry books to help build my knowledge. This one is so far the best, it's such a shame it wasn't around when I was first learning! It's clear and easy to understand with helpful pictures to explain each step. I've already learned several new things and handy tips that I never thought of before. There's also a good amount of information on the science behind corsetry and the intricacies of pattern making to help people understand why each panel is the shape it is and where the waist reduction should be, etc. The technical section on the steel components of the corset is also easily the best I've read, the earlier books I've got on corsetry just say things like "insert eyelets using hammer", whereas Julia explains each bit step by step. All in all a fantastic e-book, for beginners or for the seasoned corsetier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable Resource 2 Oct 2012
My copy of this only arrived a few hours ago, and I already feel I could master a lapped seam! For anyone interested in creating a good job, this book is written, and taught through videos by a perfectionist. Am really chuffed with this purchase, and would advise anyone to buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review by Cathy Hay of Foundations Revealed 7 Sep 2012
By bookfan
Julia Bremble's introduction to Corset Making is an innovative resource. It is the first of its kind to use video, which many students will find easier and clearer to follow than dry text and illustrations.

The author's warmth and enthusiasm come through in spades as she takes you by the hand and guides you through a subject that can, at first, be intimidating. The section on turn of cloth is particularly well placed, allowing readers to bypass the wrinkly pitfalls that can plague the beginner.

Full projects with handy worksheets for the sewing table complete this unique guide for the aspiring corsetmaker. - Cathy Hay of Foundations Revealed.
