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!
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.
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.
I would say that I am pretty sure I did find an error when making up the modesty piece on the front of the corset - but looking at things logically, you can work out that a printing error must have occurred. I decided to buy a corset "kit" from one of the links so I had all my materials together and am now the proud owner of a very well fitted, sexy corset and, if I was brave enough to wear it, would shave off 4 ins off my waist - excellent!

it just wasn't what I was looking for. I wrongly thought it was a DVD to sow me how to make a corset. It was very complicated for me to access.Published 9 months ago by Mrs Wendy Huggins
Very Good DVD it helped me during my corsetry course while sewing at home.Published on 8 Sept. 2014 by Asset
I was disappointed with this, the links for the video clips don't work and the information I thought was quite basic. Not worth the money.Published on 12 Dec. 2013 by Scarlet Moonchild
