Very nice and eye-catching, but only useful it the corset is the upper layer, otherwise these hooks would could to much bulk I think. I would like to discover a more delicate version of these type of hook, that are less bulky, those would be perfect. They do seem easier than a busk and just as sturdy if not more.
I also use hasps, which are more delicate looking... http://www.facebook.com/waistedcreations
Look in my most recent pictures folder for examples, I think its what youre thinking of.
Oh... my... goodness gracious! I thought I was the only one that ever used these! I lost my source for them. Your links are worth their weight in gold just on their own. And you have a better way of doing it than I was using! THANK you!
Thanks for an enlightening article. I was wondering if there is anywhere in the United States that one can acquire the hooks. The other question is is their a busk underneath it or just the wide solid steel bone that is drilled to hold the hooks in place?
