and it was going so well
I could just cry. I was really whaling on my Victorian corset tonight - got all but the binding done. Then I discovered that I forgot to order two pieces of boning. TWO LOUSY PIECES. *sob* Of course they are the ones that go right in the center front.

Do any of you happen to have two pieces of 13.5" spiral steel (the coil looking stuff) in your stash that I can buy off you? If not I guess I'm going to have to use reed or go buy some skinny cable ties or something 'cause I'll get killed on shipping/handling from any vendor on just two pieces of boning.

That's it the tool to cut spiral steel is going on my Christmas list so I can buy the rotten stuff by the yard from now on.

Now where are those chocolate-covered peanuts from the Girl Scouts...

I have a roll of 1/2 inch and a roll of 1/4 inch and I will be happy to cut you two pieces from either. *hugs*

Sure, no problem. I hate cutting & tipping them. I always stock up at Costume College for the year to come.

Oh how frustrating!

If you can swing the clippers for Christmas that's the way to go.

I use a dremel tool with a cutting wheel to cut my boning. One of the best investments I ever made in my craft when I got one of my first historical based wedding orders. ;) Let me know if you still need it, i can cut & tip a couple and drop 'em in the mail for you.
