The book has numerous sewing patterns which those who are familiar with Frances Grimble's books will have no trouble comprehending. I have made up a couple of the patterns and they went together very well and with no trouble. Recommended for anyone who has Grimble's books and is after more.
Its great as a "basics book" for many basic corset types, if you are a beginner there ar some great simple patterns, and for the more advanced the patterns are great to elaborate on. Wonderful for the ribbon corset patterns, which are hard to find.
