Madame Corsetiere began her self-taught corsetmaking adventures 20 years ago, with no patterns, no books, and two very sorry looking antique corsets. All her knowledge was earned the hard way, with trial, error, and mountains of discarded materials. She has experimented with every method, and takes a great deal of pride in her procedures, which yield the strongest construction and an excellent fit.

These videos, which will continue to grow in number, will hopefully make your journey a bit easier, if not more entertaining.

You are welcome to email Madame at if you have questions about a tutorial. If you wish to analyze the superiority of one method over another, or explore other techniques, there are plenty of online corsetmaking forums that will welcome the discourse.
