Review: Corset Cutting & Making

Julia describes terms such as negative ease, and how no two corsets look exactly the same on different people, because even when two people have similar measurements, their weight distribution in each dimension may be different. Tools and Materials: Tools for making your corsets — she is big on the measuring tools because precision is a must in corset making.

Patterning tools, marking tools, cutting tools, tools for your bones, tools for your eyelets or grommets, finishing tools. She even tells you what kind of needles you need and what type of thread to download.

This takes all the guesswork out for you. Let me just tell you The distance between nipples is VITAL because when you have drawn your front block, you need to know where the dart apex should be - so you draw a line which measures half the distance between your nipples, parallel to the centre front line, and there is the line upon which your bust point should be.

Being a book about corsetry, it obviously only deals with the block for the upper section of the body, but this is the hardest part to grasp when pattern making because there are so very many possibilities and ofcourse as you know, I am obsessed with bust fittings - my own having been a constant conundrum over the pre- Bravissimo years.

Therefore, my next project to try soon is the bra instructions in this book. There is no substitute ofcourse for a real life teacher, and I am very happy to have had some personal training - as documeted elsewhere on this blog - which has added a turbo boost to my understanding of pattern making.

Being able to ask questions, and see demonstrations is quite essential when learning how to do this and I would fully reccommend anyone interested in pattern making to try and find a teacher or course, however basic. If you have a passion, then all you need are a few pointers to light the way.

As corsetry ignited my interest in general dressmaking, I decided, along with finding a teacher, that I needed a more general book and this is the one I was recommended.

It's one of the industry standards for fashion students and is very very good. There are some parts of it which are a little hard to decipher but on the whole, this book is a brilliant introduction with clear and concise diagrams, instructions and explanations.

There are chapters on all aspects of flat pattern cutting for all types of garment in a huge range of styles.

McNealy supplements the original patterns and texts with additional research and annotations. These set the corsets within the design contexts of their time, and clarify period terms and construction techniques. The depth and quality of the supplementary annotations are excellent.
