The first Corset In A Day course went so well, we immediately booked another in. Come and learn to make a custom corset, including pattern drafting from your own measurements.

You need to bring your own sewing machine and basic sewing kit, and you can bring a fabric of your choice for the outer layer or you can choose from what I bring along. All the specialist bits will be supplied.
