WIP: Bombshell Skeleton!

So I’ve officially been inducted into the ranks of Those Who Cut Their Own Boning! I must say, I am a total fan – it’s not nearly as hard as I thought (I figured out the trick ;))

My very first hand cut & tipped spiral bone:

Then all my boning, cut & tipped:

Instead of pre-made boning channels I sewed Prussian tape to the lining; it’s strong and creates less bulk but you have to be VERY precise ’cause it’s only 3/8″ wide and the boning is 1/4″ which only allows you 1/16″ room on each side…. needless to say, stuffing that boning in was toight lol

And finally – the lining outside with all channels sewn & boning inserted – YAY! My hands are a little sore (not from cutting but from squeezing tips on!) but damn am I pleased with myself lol ^_^
