The Corsetmaker's Companion
Joëlle of Atelier Sylphe isn't an easy corsetiere to categorize; blending historical corsets with modern styling, and mixing with a touch of whimsy.
Professional corsetmaker Charlotte Raine tells us how she got started, how her business works and about working with the Jane Austen Centre.
We talk to Kate Mior of Totally Waisted Corsets about how she juggles a business in corsetry with a career as an international street performer!
We glance briefly this month at the historic makers of Bon Ton, Royal Worcester and Adjusto models: patents, corsets and where you can learn more about the company.
This month we have two questions - one on copyright-free patterns for corsets made for retail and one on proper length of bones.
"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
