I took a double layer of the interlining material, a nice heavy, patterned material and sewed it together. I then figured out the boning channels and sewed them up. In the second picture you can see the tips of the bones in their casing. You wouldn't see them if I pushed them all the way down, but I wanted you to see the where they are.
Tomorrow I have to baste the ugly fitting grommets on so I can get a preliminary fit from my Bride.
Meanwhile the blue princess hats are looking less gnomish and more princessy (is that a word?). Tomorrow, once the glue dries I'll put the veils on.
So far, I'm right on schedule. That won't last...
