*heavy sigh*

The artificial whalebone that was sent on Saturday (ordered more than a week ago) arrived today. Contrary to the website description, it is 3/8 inch wide, NOT 1/2 inch wide, so all my 5/8 inch wide, hand-stiched boning channels are too damn wide. I do not feel like doing all the hand sewing again anytime soon, so I guess I will call the hand-sewing 'basting to keep the layers from shifting' and machine sew the channels. Booger.

Same package held the wooden busk, but it's regency straight, not Elizabethan tapered, darn it. I am pretty sure it will still work. I am NOT sure it's not pine, rather than hardwood however, which worries me.
