A great little workbook,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Little Corset Book (Little Costume Workbooks) (Paperback)
I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this but I have been very pleased with the purchase. The book has patterns for an 1890 style corset (with steel boning),1860 style corset, chemise, drawers, 1750 style corset (with shoulder straps and steel boning) and a 1700 style corselet. The patterns need to be drafted from the grid. The book has intructions for how to make each item, but sometimes steps are missed out and some guesswork needs to be employed. Also, the lists of notions are inaccurate (I ended up buying far too much boning for a start!). However, I would recommend this book to people who can use dress patterns but have never made corsets before (like myself).
