faux lace

anonymous asked:

Hi! I'm working on an Eliza bodice and I've hit a sort of bump- I'm not too sure on how I'd have it close. I was thinking of hiding a zipper where it buttons and having faux lace up in the back but I'm afraid that'll alter how the boning affects the shape. How did you have your bodice close?

I tend to always default to show costume closures when I make my costumes, makes it a little easier for my friends to get me in and out of it and I’m always a stickler for accuracy, so I just went for the zipper.
