Corset 2 Hardware

1903 corset hardware

I finally have all the pieces I need to finish this corset.  The next step will be to insert the busk, which is my least favorite part.  There is no room for error with the busk; if it doesn’t line up perfectly, it can be very difficult to get out of when the corset is all laced up.  I had been thinking of adding little details of pink, green and gold ribbon but with the tan notions I picked up, I’m leaning more towards burgundy, gold, and olive details.  Of course, there will be ample quantities of lace.  Hopefully, tips will be healthy next week and I’ll be able to run out and get what I need to make a chemise and bloomers so I’ll be able to take pictures that do it justice.
