Basics of Corset Building by Linda Sparks
Book DescriptionThis book covers everything from the tools and types of materials necessary, to what you need to know about bones and busks, setting grommets, and styles of lacing. Sparks covers every step along the way in great detail, including how to make a modesty panel, to build single layer, double layer, and fashion fabric corsets while also offering her advice on how to fit and style a corset for the perfect look for any occasion. When building a corset, think of it as a blank canvas. From there you can structure it and add as many embellishments as you please. Use leather for a sexy look, add appliques for a vintage look, or decorate with lots of eyelets for a gothic feel. The possibilities are endless when you know the basics of corset building.

Author Biography - Linda Sparks
Linda Sparks was born in Toronto, Ontario and graduated from George Brown College in Fashion. Her career started in the Toronto fashion industry but a move to the country changed her direction and she began costume building for the Stratford Festival Theatre in the late 1980s.After almost ten years in theater, she opened Farthingales in 1997, a company she created to supply architectural products to the theater industry of North America. Farthingales stocks unique products like corset making materials, that can't be found in most fabric stores. In 2006 Linda opened Farthingales L.A. Inc. to better supply the US market. Farthingales L.A. Inc. is a corset shop, selling the raw materials, patterns, books and both ready made corsets and custom corsets. The L.A. location is also where Linda teaches her corset making workshops.
