Elizabethan Corset - Sewing and boning

I got the two pieces basted together at 1/4 inch seam as per the instructions.  I did the bottom waist edge, then the back edge from top to bottom, again as per the instructions.  I then went over to the table and started laying out the busk and the boning as close to the diagram as I could.  Wow, this is a lot of boning.

This is the diagram that they suggest.
This is the center.  The busk is in the middle.
This is the left side.

This is the right side.
It doesn't exactly match the diagram but it is very close.  Tomorrow I have to sew the boning channels.  What I'm going to do first is use a washout marker to mark them.  Right now they are just marked with straight pins.

Onward and Upward (pardon the corset pun).
