Last month I spent a lovely weekend in Oxford learning to make corsets. The course was put on by Julia over at Sew Curvy. We were making an underbust corset.
As an added bonus, the BBC was there filming for their local news, so I got asked a question! Sadly, I can’t find the video, but I took pictures of them setting up:
It was a pretty intense couple of days of sewing, but I had so much fun! Julia was a great teacher and all the ladies there were super enthusiastic. I very nearly finished mine. I have to finish the binding, but here’s how it looked:
Everyday Julia would provide a really nice lunch for us, and one of the days the weather was actually nice and we got to eat outside:
If you’re ever in the UK and interested in corsets, I highly recommend going! I’d like to go back and do the pattern designing one.
