OK, the moment of truth, after carefully cutting, stitching, punching and lacing my fabric we get to see if this toile actually fits. Thanks to the kind assistance of one good friend (how else are you going to lace it up?) you finally get to see what it looks like on me!
I have been a bit naughty making this toile, I have literally used a seam ripper to expose the areas where the busk needed to peek through. Still, it did the job nice and quickly. I’m hoping the boning will also help with the shaping, it’s hard to tell what the effect will be at the moment though.
A small update on my original posting. Please do not laugh too much at my expense. I apparently have managed to try this on upside down. Yes, I am a fool!
