Finished that final seam last night – yay! Then came the 15 min. hunt through the sewing room for the boning I’d ordered, which came last week, and (brilliantly) instead of putting it with the rest of my boning, or anywhere else logical, I stuck it in my “random sewing tools” drawer. Go, self.
I was too tired to do more than put in the metal bones, which are in the back piece (center back, and then inside of the eyelets), side front (1 right along the seam, next to the center front), and 3 in the front (center front, about midway across the piece, and then near the side seam). I’ll need to cut the plastic boning to the correct length, and I’m thinking I should probably sand the ends a bit so it’s not poky, and I didn’t have the energy to do that last night. And I haven’t yet cut the tabs. So, not a lot of boning + no split tabs = some wrinkles!
But, it fits! Next: straps! Then: attempt to bang out a riding habit while simultaneously finishing up my Brunswick and binding the stays — AGH!
