Did you use the plastic boning? I had the issue when I used it for creating my bustier of the steampunk costume where it maintained it’s curved shape so at rest it curved inward. Drove me crazy because it look like I was making an outfit for a basketball or something. But when I tried it on, it was flexible enough that it automatically took my shape and looked great. After wearing it a few times, it settled and would lie much flatter, even at rest. If it’s curving inward then it’s probably in right. If it’s curving outward (away from your body) the boning may be in upside down. I don’t have any information re: steel boning because I’ve never worked with it before. But if you figure it out, let me know what your trick was. 🙂
