And this is the last of our newest courses [at least for now :-D] and this was strictly based on demand. We had been getting requests for this and after a lady placed yet another request for this early this year, I thought to myself – sure why not?! And here it is – our Short Course in Corsetry! 😀
Oh how I love corsets! The structure, the fit – pretty much everything about it! A well built corset is just amazing and of all the things I learnt in fashion school, this was no doubt one of my favorites!
SO just a quick one to tell you all about the Course even though the flyer pretty much has all the details…
So this is an advanced sewing course for anyone who really wants to focus on bridal wear. Though truth be told, corsetry is not only used for wedding gowns. They can even be worn casually as waist corsets and can be made from any fabric. I know I made one for myself from denim and I wear them with jeans over a top or shirt. SO it can be as versatile as you want it to be.
NOTE that you must be able to sew to attend this Course and you must be quite experienced in dressmaking as we will only focus on the corsets.
If you are a beginner, you would have to register for our Beginners Course. Click here for more details.
What Will You Learn?
You will learn how to take accurate body measurements, how to create the pattern, and of course, how to build a corset from scratch! Oh… and we’ll even throw in lace moulding as well. Trust me, you will LOVE the Course!
The Course begins on 7 March, 2017 and will last for 6 weeks. Classes will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 12 noon to 4pm. More than enough time for us to leave before the rush hour traffic begins. 🙂

Thank you so much! I look forward to meeting you all in just a few days! Enjoy the rest of your holiday!
And welcome to 2017 once again!
Yes! What happened to that dream?! Year in year out we hear the same old story…. don’t worry in the New Year I will definitely pursue it. Come first January, you get all gingered up! Yes this time I’ll do it! Then half way through the year, the excuses have piled up simply because of the FEAR that is deep within you. This time next year, you will still tell the same story. Aren’t you exhausted already?! Imagine what will happens 10 years down the line when you are filled with regret?!
I remember when I was planning to resign to go to fashion school. Everyone supported me but a few said:
“why not wait to get married first?”
“why not wait to complete ICAN?”
“why not add more to your work experience?”
You know what went through my mind?! As they were telling me those things, I had my own answers ready for them.
“what if I stay and I still don’t get married in 3 years?”
“what if they keep changing the syllabus and the time it takes to complete it gets longer?”
“well… I can always find work when I’m there or even when I’m back”
The truth is there will never be a right time to get things done. You just have to take the bull by the horn. I know my sister was worried things would have changed in 3 years. 3 years sounded sooooo long to her to leave and return to expect things to remain the way they were.
But guess what?! I have gone and come back – it’s all done and dusted now! In fact fashion school is now but a memory after all I left in 2009! Almost 7 years ago now! And all the “why not”s now seem so irrelevant now.
– I am now married;
– Ok granted I didn’t finish ICAN but what the heck! I can always pay an accountant to get the job done for me; and if I even really feel like doing it, I can start again or even choose to do ACCA now but like my sister told me, what do you need it for?!
– Please the experience I have in running a business is on another level! Gosh who would ever have thought right?!
So really those stories will remain stories till you do something about it! And with the way the economy is going with people getting laid off… you really don’t want to wake up tomorrow to get a termination letter or SMS with no Plan B – especially if you have a family to feed! It is time to plan ahead while the going is good!
And that is why NOW is as good a time as any to stop procrastination in its tracks!
