The rings available in the drapery section of a fabric store work very well. I have a dress I made some 20 years or so ago, and they still look good. IMessage 82 of 82 , Nov 11, 2006View SourceThe rings available in the drapery section of a fabric store work very
well. I have a dress I made some 20 years or so ago, and they still
look good. I covered mine in matching thread with a buttonhole stitch.
Here's a link for buttonhole stitch:
make sure you sew enough of the ring to the garment piece so that it
won't rip the fabric when/if it's laced tight. Depending on the fabric,
I also sometimes back the area of each ring with a small piece/strip of
the same fabric.
