I made this bustier top and fish tail skirt with an African print fabric with a linen mix front panel and goddets. This was my first time working with boning and I was a little apprehensive at first but it didn’t turn out too bad. The boning was a bit curly and I am not sure if I was suppose to straighten then out or not but this is the end results. Also this was my first time working with an open end zip. I think I bought the wrong one, it was a little too thick for the fabric. Never mind you live and learn.
