      oooh, you have a packet of boning… EXCELLENT!

      To get you started… the first piece of boning just below the waist tie/ribbon is a 21cm piece – 2 × 21 cm pieces, one each side. Then I just kept adding the ribs, making each row one centrimetre longer, on each side, than the last. That gave me 25 rows out of a 20metre pack.

      You can start it any length you want. Adding a centrimetre with each row gives it the shape. But there are so many ways you can vary it to make it your own. Maybe you want the ribs further apart, then you would increase the length with each row by more than what I did.

      oh, one more thing… the pannier design is easier to sit down in than a cage skirt ;)
