Finished up the bias around my Elizabethan stays and inserted the shoulder strap grommets last night while watching Fraiser. Pardon the gap in the front lacing - my Maria (the best corset lacer this side of the Mississippi) was unavailable to lace me today (after all, a teenager must have a social life!), so I was on my own - lol! Ahhh, the very reason why I constructed my stays to be both front and back lacing in case no help is to be found - have a look. Happy sewing!
