Corset Lacing

From scratch or replacing lacing

  1. Start lacing from the top of the corset.

  2. Create loops in lacing halfway down and continue to bottom of corset.

  3. Knot ends of lace to stop lace being pulled from the bottom lacing eyes. Loosen lacing sufficiently to put corset on and close front busk. Tighten lacing using the loops at the centre, taking up slack from above and below the loops.

  4. Tie of excess at centre using a bow(s). Do not wrap the excess around the corset before tying off, as this can cause damage to the corset fabric during wear.
