Hello. I am working on an off the shoulder gown which has a heavy skirt so it requires boning in the boddice. I haven’t used boning before and I am getting frustrated–any help or advice would be VERY appreciated.
I purchased from my local Joann’s featherlite plastic boning that comes with the channel, only it’s packaged in a tight circle – you cut it to desired length (this SEEMED like a bonus)–only it doesn’t seem to want to lay flat–it keeps curling and not supporting the boddice. Is there a way to make it flat–or am I doing something wrong? I need some long strips of the boning–it’s a dropped waist boddice.
There doesn’t seem to be any flat boning strips at any of my local fabric stores (Hancocks & Joanns), any suggestions?? HELP!
