Great tip to cut down on time when repeatedly working with corset mock-ups. I got this from her Facebook page: "Keep a set of ‘fake laces’ to attach to toiles so that you don’t have to go through the whole lacing palaver every time you make a mock up! Make two strips with eyelets, lace them up as the back of a corset, then sew the strips onto the back of the toile in the appropriate place. When finished, unpick, and use the ready laced strips again for the next toile. Simples!"
