The gorgeous bride with her Aunts (me and my 4 sisters)
It was a great day, catching up with relatives and friends, celebrating the union of my niece with her husband. We have done quite a bit of holidaying with both of them and I couldn't choose a nicer husband for her.
I was asked to review a book for ViveBooks. I chose this book by Julia Bremble.
Entitled Corset Making for beginner to intermediate, it is the go to book for corset making. The ebook is a PDF download with interactive elements like videos. It is a really lovely looking book with lots of very clear illustrations and photos. It explains corset making simply so that it is suitable for your first corset and offers plenty if you've made a corset before. Julie's introduction is helpful in understanding how a corset works and a little about it's history. The sewing techniques are easy to follow as are Julie's instructions. Corsets are not just for wearing under clothes to give the perfect hour glass shape, they are also lovely worn with jeans or as a stunning evening garment with trousers or a skirt. Don't hesitate because this is an ebook, it is easy to download and looks great on screen. You could print it out but then you'd miss the interactive elements. If you have ever flirted with making a corset, here is the perfect textbook.
