Patterns, techniques and history of over 20 historically correct corsets, ranging from the 1750s to 1950, from boned corsets, ribbon corsets and basques to the more recent 1949 satin corsets. Each project includes the pattern, a finished drawing and close-up photography of the historic corset. For those new to dressmaking there are two step-by-step projects - one for a hand-stitched pre-1850 corset and one for a machine-stitched post-1850 corset - that take you through the whole method.
