It has taken me a while to move on to the second step given the difficulty of finding boning in New Zealand. Spiral steel boning is NOT commercially available here and was driving me up the wall. I am considering importing bulk and selling it, it is that hard and expensive to find.
I ended up paying $11 per meter and needed nearly 3m for my corset but it finally came last week. The tips were NZ$1.20 each and as I needed 20 of them, I decided to try something else.

Can’t wait to see the finished corset! Summer school has been taking up time but I promise it won’t be as long till the next post!
