Panniers–Casings Complete

I’ve finished all the casings for the panniers, and I feverishly stuffed a couple of the casings with boning I had on hand.  I’ve over-stuffed the casings and they’re straining in an odd manner and I certainly need to spend some serious time getting everything balanced correctly.  But that time is not now!


Still to do:

-Buy and insert remaining boning

-Finish waist tape

-Balance hoops


  1. Whoa. WHOA! That went together fast! They are sooo wide! AWESOME!

    These are looking great!!

  3. They're HUGE, right?! >.< Well, it didn't take too terribly long to get it all sewn together, I think it's going to take considerably more time to fidget with them until they're "right".

  4. Thanks so much! Here's to hoping they end up working the way I want them to.....I'm having sincere misgivings about their structural integrity, truth be told. I've never made anything like this before, so I'm a bit worried they will collapse under the weight of skirts, but I'll find out sooner or later if they're up to snuff......
