Have you successfully made a corset with your bespoke pattern, and want to decorate or, or try out new fabrics or decorations?
In this class, Dianna will teach you how to create a lined corset, using your own fashion fabric, with a smooth finish, a floating modesty panel, and embellish it with lace applique, brocade pattern matching, beadwork, crystals, ruched garters, cording and more! In the first class you will learn about different techniques that you may want to use on your corset, and the following classes will be used to work on these techniques in a supervised, semi-private group.
Prerequisite: Pattern Drafting For Corsetry Class and basic sewing experience.
