Success with the corset lacing at last

Yup. Happy with this now, it looks professional (even if i do say so myself) :) It looks so much better than my previous attempt.

I sewed a 4cm tube, so when ironed it became a 2cm ribbon, and fits really nicely in the 1" wide loops of the corset. I almost got away with just one ribbon as it laced all the way down the loops, but only leaves a few inches at the ends to tie it. If i try to tie them in a knot i can see it coming undone very easily. Easy fixed though - another 6-8 inches on each end should leave heaps of room to be able to tie a floppy bow and tuck all the ends into the skirt, through the space at the bottom of the lacing.
