The Corsetmaker's Companion
Luthien recreates this 1882 overbust, hourglass corset, designed to 'conform to the shape of the person more perfectly' than earlier Victorian corsets.
Today many burlesque performers commission pasties (small nipple covers) to match their costumes, so the ability to make them is a valuable commodity for a corsetmaker.
Luthien walks us through the construction, decoration and finishing of this beautiful overbust corset, including changes to the original Victorian pattern.
What better way to create a corset that stands out from the crowd than to give it a visually striking front opening that's not only beautiful looking, but sturdy and quick to use?
"Awesome awesome awesome! I have learnt more from one edition of FR than on the corset course I paid £180 for. It's worth every penny, thank you!" - Julie A., UK "Thank you... from a beginner, you make it less daunting"- Lorri, California
