through, so here it is again.
Try www.hedonia.com.au/corsetmaking with the current state of the
Australian dollar (I'm assuming you're in America) you basicly halve
the price written (the prices are in Australian dollars) to covert to
US dollars The mailing costs might get you but once again it will be
in Australian dollars.
Failing that try http://www.staylace.com/supplies.htm This is a corset
oriented site but it has a list of suppliers for things like steel
boning, corset laces etc. some of them may also have hoopskirt wire,
or whatever it's called.
This has been a public service announcement from the land of stressed
teenagers known as year twelve, Merici College.
