Day 10 - Corset Building

The SSC is drawing to an end, but our corset class is just beginning. We have a small but enthusiastic class of corset builders.

First we traced out the patterns in our size. You have to trace all the bone lines and notches!
Next we pinned it to the fabric
After cutting, we had to transfer the bone lines to the fabric.
Insert the busk. It's not difficult, but accuracy is a must!
We sewed the interior bone casings on each section. Then we laid out the sections in order and started pinning.
Lastly for today, we sewed all the sections together...six in all.
Tomorrow we will put on the grommet tape, add the boning, binding and the lacing. Then the corset is done...all in one and a half days!
