Wow, thanks so much for all the comments!

For boning I used heavy duty cable ties, and it is actually quite sturdy. I doubled up by the zipper, and either side of the grommets, but the other channels just contain a single bone. I haven't had a chance to see how tight it will lace without buckling yet, because of the fit issue, but as a fashion corset it is very respectable indeed Smiley

KUDOSSSS.

This is one of the most gorgeous things I've ever seen. I really like the color combination. What are you planning to do with it?

Very very nicely done!

LOVE the fabric. And thanks for the bias maker tip, that's one to remember!

Cottonkiller - I know I want to get a load of pictures before I think of anything to do with it, but I will probably end up finding someone I know who fits it and making a gift of it if they would wear it.

Davinia - I wasn't too keen on the idea of making bias tape, but it's incredibly easy, much more so than I had thought. I used a triangle shaped quilting ruler to get started on the 45 degree angle and then just measured and chalked and cut the strips. The ironing is the easiest bit!
