Attach the Busk
For full details on how to prepare the busk panel, see my tutorial How to Insert a Busk.
I wish I had made the panel wide enough for an adjacent 1/4″ flat, but I did not. I don’t think anything horrible will happen as a result, but it would make for a sturdier garment. Next time I will make this panel wider.
Next I attached the double-busk because I didn’t leave myself much room for attachment. I made this decision despite the potential problems with edging after.
This shows an alternate method of attaching the double-busk when compared to my tutorial on the subject. Ideally, I strongly recommend attaching a double-busk as a final detail using the instructions in that dedicated tutorial, because the bulk can interfere with sewing other seams. However, in some special circumstances, this method may be helpful.
