A stitch in time: Dalhousie University's Costume Studies program
For Jaya Ducharme, getting dressed up doesn’t mean wearing the latest trendy fashions from the mall. Instead, the Dalhousie University student gets decked out in a corset, full crinoline and early-18th-century dress (which she sewed herself, of course).
“Corsets have been my main interest since I was really little,” Ducharme explains. “Their construction was the most sophisticated in the 1800s, when they really figured out pattern drafting and how to shape them to create a nice form on the body.”
