For lacing up easily, I decided to use metal grommets for my corset. The metal grommet was patented in 1823 by Thomas Rogers.
Whether you decided to make hand-sewn eyelets or metal grommets now it is time to choose the way you lace up your corset. I wanted to try the self-lacing version from the link shown before.
Attach the ends of the narrow tape to a second piece of the wider tape. Attach another smaller twill tape at the oposite end of the wide tape.
Line up the wide tape with a second piece, wrong sides together, stitch along the short edge a little bit slanted, turn inside out. Join the two layers of the tape along all other edges by hand.
Insert the blanket at the front – Done!
