To edge the back panels, I followed the same proceedure as on the busk panels. I trimmed everything down, cut a small strip of ribbon, and stitched it in place on the outside of the corset. As before, it can be hand stitched if you prefer.
I folded over the leading edge of the ribbon…
… and tacked it in place.
That way I did not need to worry about the leading edge coming loose while I folded over the following edge and stitched it in place.

At this point all that is needed for the corset to function is to grommet it.
This is what the corset looked like after all the finishing details.
