"This tutorial was created using photographs from the corded Regency corset. It shows how to make a very basic busk pocket, applied to the front of a corset which does not have boning in the busk area. If you are adding a busk pocket to a fully boned corset (like fully boned stays), it must be added after boning, but the boning cannot be stitched through. That means you must either leave unboned space where the pocket will be stitched down, or attach it by hand.
The pocket on this particular corset opened on the bottom of the corset, and laces hold the busk in place. If you are orienting your pocket to open up, just reverse the orientation when you attach it to the corset. The busk pocket can also be added on the inside of the corset instead of the outside.
I highly recommend finishing the edge of the corset where the pocket will open before attaching the busk pocket. The pocket does add some bulk at that area, and it can make it more difficult to smoothly attach the edging unless you are edging entirely by hand.
