Rye and ginger kits provide you with most everything you'll need to complete your project. However you do need to supply a few things.
Before you start your kit be sure you have the following:
Grommets are NOT included because some people have them and it adds to the cost of the kit. If you need to purchase grommets Rye and Ginger suggest the "Set-it-yourself" Grommet setting kits that can be found at the following link - the lnk will take you to brass ones but Vogue has nickel grommet kits to.
There are grommet setting pliers out there but...well, if you've ever used one for corset making you'll know why we recommend the hammer setting type! Ginger strongly suggests not investing in grommet setting pliers - she's never found a pair that work well.
You'll find several items that Ginger suggests will make corset making easier at the Vogue/Farthingales web page
Check your sewing machine to see if the needle can move to the right or left - this is an advantage . But you can still make the corset kits without one.
