|First strip added
I sewed the strip on, right sides together from the fold to the opposite side of the panel.
|Second strip added
Again, with right sides together I sew from the folded edge to the other side of the panel and about half an inch beyond, so as to over lap the previous strip. I continued this pattern until all panels were covered (the final strip over hung the edge of the corset rather than being folded at the edge)
|Two strips folded over
Although there are only two strips here, you get the idea, I am sure.
|Back of finished edge
Here's a look at what the inside looks like after I have hand sown the inner edge down. I sewed up each join between the strips only on the back - the front edges are not sewn together.

The finished inside
The corset in it's intended configuration. :) I am REALLY liking the effect.
