Bodice Course Kits
Complete your tutu, dress, skirt, or other costume with a custom bodice. Our Ballet Bodice Classes offers your choice of several very different style and complexity selections, with options for creating both woven-fabric and stretch-fabric bodices.
In Bodice One, you will learn how to properly use the fabric grainline, flatlining techniques, how to add bone casings to linings, how to cut and tip steel spiral boning, finishing techniques with elasticized cording, and time-honored hand-sewing techniques. Allow two days.
Bodice Two is a continuation of Bodice One, adding more stitching techniques, including corded seams, different nude inset and overlay techniques, attaching boning to both linings and seam allowances, and choices between invisible closures, double-row bar closures, or lace-up closures. We will discuss each type of closure so you can make an educated choice as to what closure will work best for your specific needs. We prefer that you complete Bodice One before taking Bodice Two, unless you have made corset bodices before, using proper flatlining techniques.
Class Length: 2 days. See Your City’s Seminar Online Calendar to Plan Your Schedule
