Welcome to the Corset Draping Course!
In this course, I’ll be demonstrating how to drape a corset.
The pattern we make will be used as a base, and can be used for both lightweight and heavyweight construction.
We’ll discuss how to tape your dress form and add breast cups. We’ll also talk about the different types of boning, how they work, and how to use them during sewing.
To begin, we’ll tape our dress form & add our cups. Then, we’ll start draping section by section with our muslin.
Once all pieces are draped, we’ll clean them and put them together before taking it to the fitting. After the fitting, we may make secondary corrections.
Then, we’ll take it to the dotted paper and turn it into a pattern. After that, we’ll prepare our fabric, cut it, take it to the machine, sew it, and add all necessary constructions to complete the corset.
Finally we’ll explore Creative Draping on a constructed base (in this case, our corset).
