1911 corset sew along - Almost Finished!

Trimming and decorating to do! That's the tricky part... Should I just trim it with the same white coutil? Or use other colour binding? I really want to try out flossing it as well, so should I use matching thread and bias trim?

1911 Corset Sew Along - Bone Channels



Bone channels. And a stripey glove, my dog likes to play catch with them, by herself.


I'm missing the side table thing on the sewing machine :( such unhappy thing to sew long, straight lines...


I'm sewing with my sister's machine, with a macgyver fix


Grommet holes;
I don't have an awl, and punching holes with scissors would cut the fabric - not desirable - so instead I use a coulpe of knitting needles. Punching a hole with thin one and widening it with bigger one.


Corset so far, bones seems they might be too short, but I'll see that when fitting to myself.
