Corset Bones

I'm looking forward to January when new corset kits are being developed at Vogue Fabrics near Chicago. Vogue now has all the bits to make corsets - a good selection of bones, busks and grommets but most of all they've still got COUTIL!  The kits are not the typical kits found around on a few sites. These are fahsion corsets and fun using fabrics from Vogue. They already have some kits on-line at but they're making more so  because they're going to AnimeCentral in the spring.

Corset Samples for CD

I've spent the last few days sewing samples for an instructional power point presentation CD that will eventually be included with all Rye and Ginger Corset Kits. I've tried to photograph every step so now I just have to get onto my lap top and start writing. It's going to be more extensive than I thought. It's amazing how much is involved in making a corset when you break it down into steps. I've been making them for so long I almost do it without thinking...note the almost!

I'm also getting ideas for my next corset book that will expand on the previous one "The Basics of Corset Building".

Included in the new CD will be steps for putting in a busk, there's more than one way to do this and I've outlined other methods in the previous book.

Developing the corset kits has been really enjoyable, developing the instructions has been a bit more of a challenge because I was trying to keep the number of printed pages to a minimum. I'm hoping the CD allows me to provide a lot of information without the bulk of all that paper.
