front opening of a pink dress with 9 hand-sewn eyelets on each side of the opening
Eyelets don’t take so long after some practice

The final eyelet count on this dress was 44–18 in front and 13 on each side-back. I used pink linen thread purchased at the same time as the fabric, which I then waxed to make it easier to sew with. They eyelets are arranged for spiral lacing, and were done using a tailor’s awl to avoid too much damage to the fibers.
