Hand made bridal corset loops

I cut a 2cm wide strip of tracing paper and drew a line lengthways down the middle, then marking notches an inch apart. I laid this strip of paper over a piece of the ribbon i was using to tie the corset, then got the braid and pinned it to the first notch, leaving a bit loose to sew in to prevent it pulling out accidentally when it's in the dress. I had to wrap stickytape round the ends as it frays so quickly.

Then i made loops, 1cm high and 1" long, and pinned them to the ribbon and paper. This was quite fiddly, the sewing itself not so bad!

Next i have to make a second one, then i'll peel the tracing paper away and it's time to sew it into the dress.
