Stays

Got the last of the eyelets finished today; hand sewing almost 30 eyelets is not fun.    Getting the ribbon through them all and then sufficiently long to let me get into them, interesting and time consuming.  
Getting in and out of them is not a task for the faint hearted; nor is it for me to do alone!   I'm going to have to do some research on the best way to do the lacing so I can self-dress.

Silly grin, but I'm happy with how this has gone so far.  

Also need to work on Dh's technique to get the lacing even.
Next step is to make the shoulder straps and then bind the top.    Not sure how long that'll take, but the end is in sight!

Hello :) That looks so cool! I've made a few corsettes in my time... One way to lace it is by using two ribbons, tying them in the middle. Eg, lace from the bottom up to the middle and from the top down to the middle. Criss-crossing the lacing like a typical shoe would get laced.

Great job!! I haven't read any further, but did you use plastic boning?

Holly :)
