<p>If anyone else has issues with the bone channels... from all appearances the designer is sewing a 0.5cm seam ON the seam allowance that is pressed open at the back. In other words, after you have sewn the initial seams, press them open and then top stitch 0.5cm from the seam centre edge, on either side of that centre seam line. You are sewing along what would otherwise be the bit you zigzag on to reinforce a seam before trimming it off.</p>
<p>Can you please tell me where I can buy the transparent film you used to transfer the pattern?</p>
<p>I, too, am having trouble following the boning instructions. This may be because I am unsure of how your edged your seams. It looks like you fold it inside out but I never see you make a mention of that. Overall though I do love the drafting portion of this tutorial and it has been widely helpful :)</p>
<p>Great advice! Thanks</p>
<p>Gracias por la info ... esta informaci&oacute;n me ha ayudado en la toma de bustier b&aacute;sico. Espero el otro Info tambi&eacute;n eh ....</p>
This is great! I have never learned how to follow a store bought pattern but I can follow this! The bone channels are unclear to me but I can look it up. Thank you! Following you!
