The above links will take you to all the things you need to make a corset.

The corset bones and spiral bones pages include pictures of various types of corset bones. Spiral bones come in two widths, are grey (metal) in color and the most flexible of all corset bones. Spring steel bones, which are also known as white bones, come in four qualities. We also sell the special “U” shaped tips to fit the ends of bones after you cut them and a Bone Tipping Tool to both cut bones to length and apply the tips! There is also a link to the “How to tip bones with pliers” page. See just what it takes to successfully tip bones without a costly tool. Check out the Tips & Tricks page for lots of helpful instructions.

The busk page offers 4 types of corset busk and all come in a range of sizes. We sell only Wissner Busks and offer the straight busk also called a regular busk with either silver coloured or gold coloured hardware. This means you can buy a gold busk or a silver busk to co-ordinate with your fabric. also stocks the historical and sometimes hard to find Spoon Busk. This is the busk common in the late 1800’s and shaped like a spoon, the “bowl” of the spoon cups over the stomach and the “handle” fits between the breasts. Spoon busks are the most expensive of all the busks but the shaping is worth it for fuller figures. Wide busks are straight busks that are 2 inches wide in total, these are commonly sold to opera companies and women needing more substantial chest support. Some tight lacers also like them for the extra support.

The coutil page contains photographs and information of all our corset fabrics; coutil is fabric specifically for corset making. Coutil is not a type of weave it’s a quality of fabric. We sell herringbone coutil, satin coutil and brocade coutil.

The corset notions page discusses all of the incidental products required for corset building such as tailoring tools and dressmaker pins.

The corset & cotume patterns page includes corset and period costume patterns for both women and men. We stock all of the Laughing Moon patterns; a wider selection will be available in future.

The grommet page has kits with corset sized grommets. We have kits that contain grommets and grommet setting tools. Grommets are available in nickel or in brass finish.
