boning a “formal” dress bodice
Hi everyone. Can someone offer me advice on boning the bodice of a formal dress. I’m not working from a pattern, I’m working from a picture of what the young lady wants. It has a strapless, boned bodice. How far up does the boning run over the bust? Should it go to the top of the dress (top of the bra) or does it stop at or below the nipple? What is most comfortable? I am intending to use rigelene boning, encased in cotton tape to stop it poking a hole in the fabric. What do you think? Any advice would be appreciated.
