Creating corsets, 6 Nov. 2011
A great book, but definitely not for the beginner. In the book, the author goes through corsets from museum collections and sets out detailed patterns as to how those corsets were constructed. There are pictures of the exteriors of all the corsets, but none of the insides. The write-ups on each corset are good to read and give some insight into the people who wore the garments. There are also two projects in the back with step by step instructions, a glossary and instructions on how to floss a corset as well. I think this book is a great find and will definitely be trying out a few of the patterns.
