Corset Classes

Corset making classes are offered from time to time, our most popular format is based on the Rye and Ginger Corset Kits as the class takes only one day and you get a choice of fabrics so your corset project can be to your taste. Not all kits are available for the class but there is a selection. You learn the basic techniques of corset making and get a fashion/costume accessory to.

Corset Classes are held at Vogue Fabrics Store in Evanston Illinois, and a few other venues. Dates and locations will be posted here and at the Link below

Vogue Fabrics Store Classes


Using a waist cincher corset as the project you will learn to apply a busk, set grommets and make bone casings. We’ll start by measuring your body, cutting out your pattern, basting your corset together and fitting it to your body. You’ll be introduced to a simple technique that allows you to go from mock-up to finished corset fairly easily with the use of exterior bone casings. Do not expect to finish in class! Our goal is to complete one side of the corset in class, so you can finish the rest at home.

One, 8-hour session. Class fee: $195.00 - includes supply kit with most supplies.

Friday, November 20 9:00-5:00 Evanston, Ill.
Saturday, November 21 9:00-5:00 Evanston, Ill.
