Make a Bodice

£200 Make an enquiry

This is a class for the experienced seamstress who has not been brave enough to tackle the mysteries of boning a bodice on her own. It is a wonderful garment that you will love to wear and it will be constantly admired and discussed at parties.

This class can be split into two, three or four sessions and over a number of weeks if desired.

During this lesson you will measure yourself, cut and prepare the material with my guidance.

You will then practise the art of boning and learn the different types of boning channels as many bodices use more than one type. When you feel confident enough you will then start to prepare your own bodice, and proceed to cut and insert the boning.

Bodices are usually finished with a self made bias binding edge. Instructions on how to make your own will be given. Applying the binding can be done in one of two ways, depending on your abilitiesand finished look. You can then add a lace trim or braid if you desire.

Bodices are laced up with ribbon through ribbon loops or eyelet holes. Great for pulling in tight to accentuate your waist, or letting out later on when you have had too much dinner!
