Elizabethan Block Party 1: Drafting Corsets with the Conic Block

The Conic Block is a great starting point for drafting corsets. This eBook includes instructions for the best way to reduce the Conic Block and for using that reduced block to draft versions of the Pfalzgrafin, Effigy corsets with a smooth waist arc (for comfort). It also includes directions for a Curved Front corset.I’ve seen people working with the Conic Block to make corsets, which I think is super cool! I know not everyone likes to just wing it, though, so I’ve got 20 pages of step-by-step directions and some of the “whys” to go with all the “hows”. There’s also a brief visual guide to troubleshooting the fit of your reduced block.

      Hi, Amanda,

      Thank you for wanting to buy – that makes me happy! :) I just checked the PayPal link, and it shuttles me straight over to the payment center. Maybe their service had some weird hiccup? Um… Not really sure what to do about this one. I think there’s a way where I can send an invoice via PayPal if the buttonsy-boo refuses to work for you, but I’m stumped about what’s happening.

      I just love technology… :/

      :( I’ve noticed problems in the iThings myself – makes me sad. I really need to work on a mobile-friendly version of the site. Maybe over the summer….

      Thank you, and I hope you enjoy the book! :)
