A Corset is Not Just Underwear

Sometimes we see a corset but don't know that it's a corset. This vintage inspired dress, is in fact a circle skirt and corset. The corset is the perfect way to go strapless, getting support and curves comfortably.  Yes, comfortably...anything that fits is comfortable, wear a bra that's too small and you'll hate it - the same goes for a corset. With a corset there is never any hauling your bodice up - we've all seen the brides maids do it as they struggle to keep their dresses up. A corset is secure and
you're secure in'll feel secure and you'll feel confdent because you'll look amazing. Consider buiding a corset into your next strapless dress - summer sundress or stunning evening gown.

Farthingales has books, patterns and corset making supplies, as well as lots of information on the "Tips" pages.  check out our photo albums

Costume College

I'm currently in L.A. for Costume College where I taught a "busk application" class on Friday and cruised the Vendors market where I bought some lovely and unique brass buckles (Very Victorian) from Dragons Treasure.  There were so many great things there that you can't get anywhere else.

Then last night was the Gala Dinner preceeded by the Costume Parade - my favorite part of Costume College - seeing what everyone has created! Sat with Heather and Laura of Truly Victorian patterns - a line that Farthingales sells.

Today it's off to the Winery

I've come to Costume College for around 12 years and it's worth the trip and time off work. There are well over 100 classes (though I've not counted them) and everyone involved is a volunteer!
