Just had an interesting question asked on a recent Instagram post of mine and thought I’d answer it here as well!

The person asked what kind of bones I used to be able to sew through them, they were referencing the time lapse video that can be found at the end of step 10.

I used predominantly spiral steel bones, except for the 4 flat steel bones I placed either sides of the eyelets. Even though you could sew through the gaps in the spirals, I don’t recommend it as when the bones inevitably flex as the corset is worn, the threads can snap inside the channels. Instead I angle my needle so that I can sneak it in between the bone and the top layer of fabric, that way they don’t interact with the bones. It’s easier do to this by going perpendicular to the bone, which you can also see me doing in the video.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions x
