How to manipulate historical patterns like Janet Arnold's to fit you, both by draping on the dress form and by a flat pattern adjustment method.
This month Marion McNealy shares with you some of the vintage corset making and fitting books that are online.
The books range from patterning and making an 1857 corset (perfect for the Single Pattern Project!) to 1920's and 30's corsets, corselettes, brassieres, bandeaux and girdles. We've even got an excellent book from the 1950's for corset saleswomen on fitting a customer and making her feel at ease during the fitting process, still applicable to customers today!
