- Nov 18, 2001I have another question about lacing. For some of my
own corsets, I used "elephant thread." This is a very
thick leather strip; it's strong and comes in many
colors. The down side is that it's at least $2 a yard
and I have to run into NYC for it. Does anyone have
any other substitute ideas?
