3.0 out of 5 stars Nice pictures, but thats about it..., 15 Feb 2009
This review is from: Corsets: Historic Patterns and Techniques (Paperback)
I was really looking forward to getting this book as I thought I would be getting a book with valuble information and tips on how to make a corset-as suggested by the blurb. However, the instructions are basic at best and the patterns are not that helpfull-for example there is no proper explanation as to how to enlarge the patterns to fit a modern woman. The projects at the end are just not detailed enough to enable a really good corset to be made from them, and I really am not sure why the childs corset project is included-I don't think many children would want one! The photos are lovely, clear and large, so you can see lots of detail. However, overall I was dissapointed at the quality and amount of the text, does not really do what it says on the tin....

If you were doing reenacting, you might need to do a child's corset. And no offense, but to me, pattern scaling/resizing, is something you would find in a tailoring or sewing book, not in a corset book.
