Last semester (fall 2010) I was blessed with the opportunity of studying abroad in London. I took two classes at the London College of Fashion and one of them was making a corset from an 1880 Victorian Corset Pattern to fit ourselves.
The hardest part was putting in the bones and then taking them out to trim then and then trying to put them back in. Because they provided us the basic corset kit, of course they’re going to give us the cheap plastic kind of boning. I had blisters on my hands for 2 weeks.
