Partially boned, showing materials used
The stomacher partially boned, using the materials in my stash. At the top of photo 1/4 inch ribbed clear plastic boning removed from its sewn cotton casing, bought at Spotlight by the metre. Cut ends were sanded with coarse sandpaper to round them and prevent poking through as much as possible. The 6/8 inch yellow plastic below it was used when I ran out of the clear version - packing strips used to tie up a new exercise bike box (not mine I hasten to add!) It will do for this project since it will be worn rarely. I did notice the whole thing moulded nicely to my shape by the end of the evening, but reverted to straight eventually.
