Corset cont.

I was happy to find the cable ties for boning at Home Depot just as the article suggested. I did have some already cut out corsets, but I have the feeling that I'll have to start from scratch because I've gained weight since I cut those out. Of course I could finish those for my etsy shop, but for now I want one for myself so it's ready to wear in my pirate show. So clothe the witch first and then on from there.

I do have some gold velvet I could use. I have some raw silk I could line it with too. What I don't have right now is the room to sew because my boyfriend is working on a massive arrow making project and the shafts are everywhere. And I have a gig March 22 so I'm going out of town anyway. But I do want a corset to wear before summer hits so I can't put it off too much longer.

Corsetry Boning

I just found a great page explaining all the various pros and cons of materials used for corset boning.
It was very encouraging. Maybe I'll actually finish a corset now.
