It's not only finished, but photographed for proof! Getting the eyelets through 4 layers of fabric (2 stiff canvas, 2 cotton duck) plus the buckram proved to be a PAIN, and as hard as I whacked the setting tool to set the eyelets ... I done broke my wooden cutting board I retired from food prep to crafting. Oops. Oh, yeah ... the pic:
I'm particularly happy with the back panel :) I now have a pretty backbrace. Some of y'all know I have never taken a pic of the previous version, except for a cropped photo of the inside where I had stitched in a contrasting thread. It's still too ugly to show y'all, but now I have a nice one to show off.
