Corset making is a fundamental part of creating a period costume - however, today, a corset can also be a fashionable garment in its own right. Shirley has the skills to be able to make almost any style of corset from almost any material - only constrained by the bounds of your imagination.

All corsets are made-to measure with either steel or plastic boning and are priced from £200, depending on style and decoration.
