Or, rather, they're making what they're calling 'boned bodices', but it looks like all the contestants are referring to them as 'corsets'.

Here's the little preview: The Great British Sewing Bee Does Corsetry.
I'm keen to see what techniques they use and how the contestants get on. I definitely saw spiral steel in the trailer, so they are using steel boning.
What do you think of the Sewing Bee? Should they be making speed corsets? Would this encourage you to have a go at making a corset?
If you're thinking about making your first, I've got some info coming up soon about corset patterns, so keep your eyes peeled. Subscribe to my mailing list, to be first to know when it lands!
Edit: Here is my first post on the corsets made in this episode of the show! And Part 2 is here!
