I finished converting scraps into boning casings and basted them onto the corset mockup. To make taking them off easier on myself, I basted the boning casings on using bright red thread on top for easy seamripping. Here is today's round of pictures:
Remember I said I cut a size 16 instead of the size 20 the measurement chart would have me do? I think I need to go down another size to a 14 ... this is still loose on me (for a corset). To my eye, it also looks like I need to make the bust gussets a bit bigger, and even though the hip flare has smoothed out I want to try it a smidge longer.
First things first, though ... I am going to take a nap on the idea!
