A truly fashion packed century! The 1800s begin with the empire line and end with the bustle, experimenting with just about every corset shape in between. Industrialisation sews the seeds of change for the entire landscape of fabric and clothing manufacture into the next century with the invention of the sewing machine and aniline dyes. Alongside the birth of the factory the end of the century also sees the first ‘home sewing patterns’. On our cutting table we look at the complex darts, panels and gores needed to keep up with the constantly shifting silhouettes of each decade. Expect lots of dart manipulation, shaped panels and a perhaps a foray into corsetry!
