    Default Sew _ Corset

    I wanted to sew a corset, but a friend said that you need to sew bones. What is it and how to sew them?

    Welcome!

    I think your friend was referring to boning. Boning is plastic these days, although I think it actually was bones originally. Here is some I removed from 2 gowns I recently made over. Both were lined, and the boning slipped into casings in the lining that held it all in place.

    I haven't worked with boning much , so I recommend searching YouTube for techniques.

    You should be able to buy boning at places that sell fabrics and supplies for formal wear.
