Hi, I was hoping someone could help me with this! I have Simplicity pattern 2884, for which I need 3/4 yd. of 3/8" of featherweight boning. (Is featherweight the same as featherlite?)

Anyways, I've been searching my local Jo Ann's for boning that's 3/8" wide and can't find it anywhere. But, a google search gave me this result:

The title says it's 3/8" wide but the picture and the description describes it as 1/4" boning with 1/2" cover, and on other sites those same measurements are given for boning described 1/2" wide. I've definitely seen that at Jo Ann's, but not described as 3/8".

Can someone just tell me what to buy, please? I just want to get the dress over with, at this point!

I wouldn't worry too much about getting the boning the exact size it asks for. if the dress has channels for the boning, simply make them slightly larger or smaller to fit what you can easily buy. If it asks you to just sew the boning on, that small a difference in width shouldn't matter. Featherweight boning is so light that a slight difference in width really shouldn't make much difference in the fit of the garment.
