Quick trick for sewing boning channels in corsets.

Marking a zillion boning channels when I'm making a corset is kind of a pain, especially in this case where the corset was white! As I was using 1/2" boning for this project, I decided to try my sewing machine's quilting bar instead of marking every channel. It worked! Just make sure that you have your center front lines marked first and keep an eye on your stitching line because if it starts to wobble each line will get even more wobbly as you go.

Note, I took the photo after I finished the project and all of the channels were already sewn. :)
