I bought some fabric covered plastic boning. Now all the instructions I find say take the plastic out of the casing, sew casing on, re-insert boning.
BUT the plastic doesn't seem to want to come out of the cover????? Is it just very snug or is this a different type?
How do I attach it? I don't want to break machine needle...I suppose I could hand sew it on.

It should slide out very easily. There is a type of boning - without its casing that looks like there is a mesh type covering on it. Could that be it? If that is the case then you have to make a casing for it.

If it is the slide out kind, there should be a distinctive channel for the boning and a flat area on either side of the channel to facilitate sewing.

Can you post a photo?

I used boning many years ago when I made some strapless party dresses. I never took it out of the casing before sewing the casing to the garment. Never occurred to me to do so and the instructions never said to do it. Does sound like a much easier way to attach the stuff though. It's difficult to stitch with the boning still in the casing

Sew it on using a zip foot?

I don't have a zipper foot. :(
By hand it is then.
