LM 113 Underbust Corset Making Class
LM 113 Underbust Corset Making Class

Welcome to the underbust Corset Making Class at Sew Victorian.

This is the corset that I wear for waist training.  Within 2 weeks and 1 day my waist was reduced 2 inches with a 1 inch permanent reduction.  What is even more amazing then the waist reductions is the the body contouring that has occurred.  My sides are slimmer as well as the front from the bust line to the hip line is sooo much smoother and flatter.

This corset class is a wonderful class where we go though the how to make a 2 layer underbust corset, using the laughing moon pattern 113.  The corset you will complete is a standard Victorian underbust that will pull in your waist and allow you to wear your modern bra with it.  If you are looking for a more in depth corset class that shows how to do a mock up and fitting I would suggest our other corset class located HERE.   This is a wonderful waist training corset.  This corset can be made with a number of different materials, we are using a German coutil during the video.

For this class you will need the following items:

  •  10" Busk
  • 4-6 yards of lacing for the back
  • 2 yard of coutil ideally 54/60 wide
  • 30 size 00 grommets
  • 1 tapered awl
  • 1 grommet inserting tool
  • 1 1/4 yards of 1 inch wide Twill tape
  • 3 1/2 yards of 1 bias binding to match your fabric, or enough fabric to make your own
  • 3 1/2 yard for flat lace trim
  • 1/4 inch wide bones by length all sizes.  If you alter your corset at all you will need a different amount of different sized bones.

4 bones in each of the following sizes:

  • 5.5 inches
  • 6 inches
  • 6.5 inches
  • 7 inches
  • 8.5 inches

2 bones in each of the following sizes:

  • 9.5 inches

With boning, I would STRONGLY suggest that you do not purchase them until you have made your corset and you can determine what bones in what lengths YOU want to fit YOUR body.
