Upcoming Renaissance Costuming Workshops

I have a series of four workshops coming up in the next month, all centered around Renaissance costuming and corset-making. In the near future this series will be followed up with a workshop on Renaissance-style hoop skirts and bum rolls, as well as workshops on how to draft and construct true Effigy-style corsets using reed boning.

Details for each of the workshops may be found on their individual event pages. Sign up via the forms on the event pages, or by using the main contact form. Space is limited, and the first class is in just two weeks, so if you wish to attend sign up early.


  • Making Renaissance Chemise and Bloomers (19 Feb 2011)
    Sacramento, CA
    Attendees will use measurements to create a raglan-style chemise with ribbon drawstrings and gussets in the armpits. The collar and cuffs can be plain or ruffled as desired. Optionally, elastic may be used on the cuffs instead of ribbon. We will also use measurements to create basic crotched or crotchless bloomers either with ribbon drawstrings or elastic (optional). Cuffs may be plain or ruffled as desired.


  • Making Renaissance Partlet and Bloomers (26 Feb 2011)
    Sacramento, CA
    Attendees will use measurements to create a raglan-style partlet with tight collar and cuffs and gussets in the armpits. The collar and cuffs can be plain or ruffled as desired. We will also use measurements to create basic crotched or crotchless bloomers either with ribbon drawstrings or elastic (optional). Cuffs may be plain or ruffled as desired.


  • Conical Corset Pattern Drafting (5 Mar 2011)
    Sacramento, CA
    Attendees will use measurements to create a conical corset block, and then use that block to create a fully functional basic tabbed conical corset pattern.


  • Basic Tabbed Conical Corset Making (6 Mar 2011)
    Sacramento, CA
    Attendees will make a partially boned, strapless, basic tabbed conical corset using spring steel boning, cotton ribbon edging, and two-piece grommets. The completed corset will be perfect as a foundation garment for costuming any time period requiring a conical-silhouette. It will be front-lacing, back-lacing, or both, as desired.
