Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

19 Jun 2021 to 20 Jun 2021 Once Only Event

Fancy channelling Gatsby vibes and stepping into the world of the 1920s flapper? Join Lorraine White Heritage Corsetry Artisan in this two-day workshop held at Cobb+Co Museum as they work from a 1929 vintage pattern to create your very own authentic 1920s costume slip. Drafted to your measurements and completed in a delicious silk/cotton voile, this piece will make you the envy of vintage-loving enthusiasts!
This two-day workshop will focus on drafting a basic slip block to your personal measurements using industry-standard materials and drafting techniques, from which you’ll complete a toile sample.
All experience levels are welcome, but a basic knowledge of machine sewing is recommended. There will also be some “light math” involved.
All materials and machinery are provided to complete your outfit and a small class size guarantees individual attention for the best possible results.

Equipment to bring with you – your sharpest sewing scissors and a pair of paper cutting scissors, berry/pearl head pins, a measuring tape, calculator, a fineliner in red and black and a 2B pencil.
