Synopsis: Waisted Efforts compliments the classic "Corsets and Crinolines" by Norah Waugh. Thirty years in the preparation, it contains the largest collection of corset drafts of any publication, with extensive details in construction. Among costumers, Waisted Efforts has become known as the "corset maker's bible."

About the Author: Robert Doyle was the creator of the animation program at the restoration of the 18th century Fortress Louisbourg in Nova Scotia. He went on to create Canada's first and only Costume Studies Program at Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia.

Thirty years of research and teaching has produced this extraordinary work; shedding new light on this ancient garment, now entering a new renaissance in contemporary theatre and fashion.
