I have never used boning in a garment before. I ordered 1/4" boning, as the pattern directed. I got the package marked 1/4" boning, and it is very nice -- except for one major flaw -- it is actually 1/2" wide. The boning itself is 1/4" wide, but it is encased in fabric, making the total 1/2" wide. My pattern calls for it to be inserted in a 3/8" placket at the bodice seams -- obviously something 1/2" wide will not slide in there.

Fortunately for me, I tried it in only one seam, and discovered the problem. I solved it by sewing the boning right next to the seam with a zipper foot, and then lapping the seam allowance over the boning and sewing the other side, also using the zipper foot. It worked well, and the product is actually very nice -- I just wish the dimensions were clearly stated in the product description and on the packaging.

I did appreciate the instructions to place the curve towards the body. I may not have done that otherwise.

A good quality product, the 'sleeve' around the boning fits nicely. I had looked at bulk boning while in town, and it was of very poor quality. If I am going to take the time to sew an item (dress) that requires boning, I want to use quality notions, this item is of good quality & it saved me a trip to town!!

First, let me say that I will definitely use this product again, now that I know more about how to use it.

The pattern for my niece's prom dress listed boning as an optional notion, and I can't imagine how it would stay up without it. The pattern directions said to see the boning manufacturer's information for use, and then the Dritz package gives very brief Instructions that include "Follow pattern directions for applying boning to your garment". Of the 6 Tips for Cutting, Trimming & Placement is the cryptic "2. Position boning on garment so it curves toward the body." The pattern actually needed an S-curve shape to follow the waist/abdomen curve and the curve of the bust. We made several unsuccessful attempts at getting a little of the excessive curl out of the coil of boning by hanging it using a weight. The Dritz/Prym website wasn't any more helpful and searching the internet provided a few clues on use. One sewing discussion site from 2006 clued us in to using heat to make the boning straighten or be more pliable. Quite a lot of boning was wasted as we experimented with ironing and hot water. Notes: will melt and stick to the cloth casing so it can't slide. Will melt to the iron. Optimum water temperature was difficult to achieve.

There must be millions of tips out there for sewing the stuff in, trimming the ends properly, and other things I'm sure we didn't even think of. But we couldn't find them online. Our search, trial and error did add some "I Love Lucy" style fun to the little sewing bee we had going.

I just seems that the manufacturer would give better or at least more information and ideas on how to use their product. (And that information should be readily available online at 2 am the night before the prom.) This wasn't ever covered in Home-Ec.

I used this to make the bustier for my halloween costume. It worked great, although can be difficult to cut. It slides easily in and out of casing, as needed.

Be sure to measure the total yardage that you need before ordering! I forgot this step and ended up running out halfway through!

I used the boning to make a handy pin cushion/small trash bag combo to place on my sewing table beside my sewing machine. Worked very well as I threaded it through the casing to give shape to the top of the small trash sack.

When I first needed this product, it was to add boning to a costume. Then it seemed to be in all the costumes I was making. This is great for costumers (e.g. you're boning a dress instead of wearing a proper corset) or when you need flexible boning. It cuts with scissors easily. Though it comes rolled up and tends to curl, a quick pass with an iron flattens it out. If it's stuck in a fold (e.g., in a tight waistline) for awhile, it does tend to conform to that until you release tension and iron it flat again.

I sew a lot and boning is needed to help in a lot of cases. This product was exactly as I ordered and came several days earlier than expected! I would buy this again.
