I will explain why.
I thought it would look good to wear black gloves, but the stylist in charge of photography thought otherwise. So ... you can do whatever you think is best!
BTW, the bright pink interlining, is because I had this on hand, it was the perfect weight and when the costume is finished it won't matter what color it is.
Big reason number two for not construction this like a corset with bone tape stitch to the outside.
Note that my cut edges don't exactly match up. You have to go by feel. Smooth out the lumps and if the edges don't match ... so be it.
First press the seam allowance back ...
For this and all stitching on vinyl use a LONG STITCH.
When there is a will there's a way!!
