Lucy (the author) says
I have named my book Waisted Creations: A Modern Corset Making Guide, because Waisted Creations is the name I have shared my work as for over a decade. Rather than a general guide to sewing corsets, or a resource for historical reproductions, my book presents three of my most popular corsets as projects which will teach the reader a wealth of techniques for both sewing and embellishing corsets and guide them through the process of creating beautiful modern corsets.

Each project is described in great detail with all the information needed to recreate the project at home, and approximately 40 pages of text and images.My book  is more than a step by step guide for corset construction, it dives into the myriad of techniques which are used by modern corset makers, and offers tips and advice on things such as what type and width of boning to use. All of the projects come with a graded multi-sized pattern which is printed at half scale in the book so that the reader can sew the corsets at home.

Techniques covered:
Working with corsetry mesh
Cutting out fabric with a rotary cutter
Lace overlay
How to mirror lace 
Hand making boning channels and binding
Inserting a busk using the buttonhole method
Sewing an under-busk 
Machine sewing binding
Setting eyelets with vario-pliers
Bonus  cutting patterns out with a laser cutter

Closed front corsets
Sewing padded cups
Lace applique (cutting and hand stitching)
Foot operated eyelet press
Bonus creating a cupped corset pattern from an overbust and a bra
