The corset is sexy, versatile, funky, and timeless. Wear one as underwear, or outerwear, with jeans, a dress, or trousers, or keep it strictly in the bedroom. Making corsets is fun! A corset can be plain or fabulous, and tailored to a specific outfit or occasion.
As a bespoke garment is beyond the pocket of most people, the only way to achieve a good fit and comfort is to make your own corset. Happily, unlike many items of couture clothing, making a corset isn’t as difficult as it may seem. If you can sew a straight line, you can ‘build’ a corset.

In Corset Making for beginners to intermediate, Julia Bremble passes on the most practical methods of corset building built up through years of making and research. She gives a good grounding of basic corset skills for beginners, and a source of inspiration, from where you can explore more innovative creations. Her professional corsetry techniques, tips and tricks will show you how to make a corset to fit any body, and help you create a polished result from a commercial pattern.

Why is Corset Making a bestseller?
‘Julia Bremble’s introduction to Corset Making is an innovative resource. It is the first of its kind to use video, which many students will find easier and clearer to follow than dry text and illustrations. 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
