I fear the little holes

Spent about three hours working on the corset last night. All casings are stitched down, the back facing is on and turned back and its edge finished with yet another pair of casings.

Now I have to put the lacing grommets in. I spent about half an hour this morning before work marking the placement of the grommets, and I'm still not convinced. I think the top and bottom ones may be too close to the edge. Clearly, I could move the edge into the hem allowance slightly, but will that make the boning channels too long? Hmm, will measure tonight.

Poking holes in stuff I've spent hours making was never my idea of fun, though. It's nerve-wracking because if you mess up, you can't just unpick it. Eeek.
