This is a book that covers the minimum of corset construction. It does not cover pattern drafting and there aren't any patterns. I'd recommend it to those that know absolutely nothing about making corsets. I have been reading Foundations Revealed articles, so this book didn't have much to add that I hadn't already seen.
