Alison Kannon demystifies the construction and recreation of “bodies”, the stiffened supportive layer of clothing that later came to be called a corset or stays.
Alison checks the fit of the pattern created in Part 1, researches and tests patterns and numbers of bones, and creates the final corset.
A novel design using curves. We'll learn more about the inventor and his corset, and begin our journey to recreating this beautiful piece ourselves.
The history and construction of lower hose: netherstocks, stockings, and boot-hose. Then we'll drape, pattern and sew our own with a combination of machine and handstitching.
