FD 281 — Corsetry in Fashion I

Students study the history of corsetry from the 1600s to the 1850s and learn how the body is manipulated to create a fashion silhouette. Through museum visits and online market research, students analyze the differences between corsetry and class draping and develop technical patterns to create period corsets using traditional construction techniques.
