The Studio Faro Corset Block is the result of a pattern-making project for a local designer. Designed and fitted to meet industry standards, it’s a favourite with manufacturers and textile teachers. Checkout my Worksheets for pattern making instructions for corsets.

Corset Block features:
This four panel corset block, is supplied without seam allowances (N.S.A.) for first pattern developments. It's graded to sizes 6-16 and can be used exactly as it is, with the princess line seams, for your first corset.
It's home and industry ready and based on my size chart. The block fitting is extended slightly past the waist for a classic corset fit. When you check the measurements on the size you have selected you're looking for a close body fit without garment ease.
Where do I start:
The first order of business is to select your closest size and begin the process of fitting this block to your own measurements. The range of sizes on offer relates to my size chart. Cut your closest size in calico and make any necessary adjustments for personal fit. I'll be producing some videos and tutorials that will help out in this process. Once you have achieved a good personal fit you will be ready to cut your first patterns.
