Create the corset loops by placing a length of strong fabric or tape (here I have used a stiff bias binding) over the pattern piece Back Corset Loops.
Line one edge of the tape up with the line closest to the curved loop and pin onto the paper.
Individually cut the cord and arrange it as per the design. Repeat for the other side.
You may wish to prepare the cord and then arrange them in position as you stitch them individually at the sewing machine. Stitch directly though the paper. Once complete carefully tear away the paper.
Lay the lining RS together with the main garment. Place the Back Gusset piece with the loops facing the RS of the main garment. Arrange it so the tape edge is just within the seam allowance so it is concealed once stitched.
The Back Gusset can be attached to either side but if you have a preference, ensure to attach the Back Gusset to the correct side at this point.
If using 1cm wide boning, topstitch 7mm either side of each seam. Sew directly though the outer and inner garment to create channels for the bones to go into.
Create a channel 14mm wide at both centre back points also. Begin each with the first line of topstitching approx. 3mm off from the seam allowance holding the loops. This extra topstitching also acts to reinforce the loops.
After cutting each bone to the right length (3cm less than the final length of the channels) add caps to both ends and insert.
