Bustle Finished!

Maggie's bustle is complete!  It has regular hoop boning in the channels.  Cutting the boning was terrible until I figured out that it is much easier to bend the boning with pliers and then pinch the bend until the wires broke.  I wish I'd figured it out sooner!  The pattern (Laughing Moon 112) worked beautifully!
