Some guy in the car department told me to buy some car repair stuff, but only after buying did I read the notice that said '' highly toxic, use gloves, a breathing mask and protective glasses. Do not let it touch your skin or your clothing''. After searching through what I had at home, hoping something could do the job, I found this little tube of sillicone...
It's basically kitchen and bathroom sillicone, fot joints and such... but it said it workes with metal so i gave it a try.
Here is the boning drying. After a forst try with one bone, I decided the sillicone was okay, so I did the rest of them. If you count them, you'll see there are two extras ones that aren't even the right size. These two are for my 1840's stays.
The boning is in! It was a little bit harder to slide in because of the sillicont, but i managed it nonetheless. Sorry the pictures are sideways, I forgot to turn them and my computer is slow today so it would have taken too long to delete, turn and re-upload :(
Bias on the top and below the lace was added. Pretty, isn't it?
Satin ribbon laces added... can't wait to try it on!!
