Costume designers will be able to further extend their knowledge and understanding of bringing history to life for the modern age thanks to a new book by Arts University Bournemouth lecturer, Mandy Barrington.

Mandy is a Senior Lecturer in Costume at AUB and has a passion for researching historical patterns and helping young designers learn about the corsetry of the last 300 years. This led her to creating her first book ‘Stays and Corsets: Historical Patterns Translated for the Modern Body’. The book doesn’t just tell students about corsetry, it shows them how to recreate original historical garments and adapt them to fit modern figures by providing pattern templates and step-by-step instructions. Last year she launched the follow up; ‘Stays and Corsets Volume 2’, which has already proven highly popular on Amazon. The second volume contains brand new corset patterns with a range of silhouettes that span from the late 16th century to the early 20th century.
