Boning the Waistband

Gertie, from Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing is hosting a tutorial on how to bone your waistband over on her blog. I asked her a while back if she would be willing to contribute a post for our sewalong and wonderfully she agreed and suggested this couture technique that could really go into any waistband or waist section of a skirt. Hop on over to her blog and bookmark this tutorial for future or now use.

It's so fabulously put together and definitely is something I would like to try (especially on this skirt) and is an awesome touch for a more advanced sewer looking to up the ante with this skirt and many others. Gertie's such an awesome teacher and I've been following her since last year when I read a controversial article about tattoos and she was mentioned. I jumped on over to her blog and found out what an amazing seamstress she is and have always been thoroughly in awe of everything she does. Thanks for sharing with us Gertie!

    Thanks for the tutorial! I'm thrilled you both put these instructions together. I don't plan to do this type of boning on a skirt for a while-- but trust me, it is something I want to do at some point, so now I know how. Thanks!
