I always love to learn how something works. When I was a child, my favorite book was ‘How Things Work’. In the sewing world itself, there is still so many things that I don’t understand and want to learn. People often says, ‘Isn’t it difficult to make this or that?’ Of course everything is difficult when you don’t understand, but there is a satisfaction when your brain is slowly figuring out how something works.
In pursue of this satisfaction, a couple of years ago I learned to make a corset. It was a very satisfying experience and I really love the result although I rarely wear the corset anymore. At that time, there was not many resources for people who want to learn corset-making. Even now, I think there the resources are still scarce.
So I was happy when Scarlett from Corset Training.net contacted me about her newly launched The Express Corset Making Course. It is a package of downloadable MP4 video course and a couple of PDF books. She sent me a link to download the package and it consisted of:
- 2 hours of step-by-step corset making video
- 36 minutes of bonus features on making the back panel and altering the mock-up
- 51 pages of corset making manual
- 26 pages of pattern compendium, on drafting several corset patterns
Now 2 hours seem like a long time! But I have watched it all and it is really a step-by-step video of how to construct a corset. If you have all the materials and equipments, you can basically start sewing with the video playing and finish a corset during that time. Of course it is better to read the manual and watch the video first before actually making the corset.
I wish I found this course when I first made my corset! It has everything basic that you need to know on making corset. The PDF manuals has all the information on making the mock-ups, the types of materials and where to get them, the order of constructions, and how to finish and embellish the corset.
If you’re interested in this course, you can watch some preview video here:
The course is $49.99 but Scarlett has offered a 30% off if you use the code PURPLE30 when you buy The Express Corset Making Course. The code will be available until the 13th so you have plenty of time to think. She also has 100% money back guarantee if you find out that the course is not for you.

I was offered the course for free in exchange for a review. I was not paid for this review but the link is affiliated. However, every opinion is my own.
