12810Re: Advanced Sewing Instruction
- Jun 29, 2014Hi Jenny,
I just released a series of 8 Interactive e-Books that describe how to make custom-fit corsets. This series is currently contemporary corsets. If the series proves popular, I would like to expand it to include period corsets which I have a passion for from my experience as a theatre costumer.
My Interactive e-Books combine embedded videos with written instructions on the same page. I call it "watch-a-little, read-a-little." It is the most powerful teaching medium I have had the pleasure using in the 40 years I have been showing people how to make custom-fit patterns.
I cover a variety of corset designs, single and double layer corsets, and sewing techniques. I had the good fortune to work with models everywhere from a "B" to a "DD" cup to illustrate the process in both the videos and photos. The techniques I use to create the custom-fit corsets are unique. They require no measurements. You create a mold of the body using techniques that the women in my online custom-fit bra class came up with. The resulting patterns require little or no additional fitting. The website also includes links to resources for corset making from around the world.
