In this session, I taught how to prepare for draping a corset. We will be making a traditional sweetheart corset with a center front seam that curves around the bust. I showed different types of breast cups and how to attach them to the dress form. The key is getting the right size and positioning them properly for the desired shape.

Lesson Steps:

  • Decide on the overall length and shape of the corset
  • Attach the breast cups at the desired angle and position
  • Mark the center front, center back, waistline, and hip lines
  • Divide the front and back into 4-6 sections for seam lines
  • Position the seam lines to create the desired silhouette
  • Make sure all taping is secure before starting to drape
