Stays Progress

Yesterday I started my 1790’s stays. I decided to base them off the the Kent University Stays (see pic below). So far I’m please with the result. I still need to sew the boning channels, add the boning, add straps, and bind them. Here are the pics, Enjoy!

The actually close all the way on me, cause I can squish, unlike my dress form.

Nice work Lauren, transition wear is a bit of a fetish of mine. I love fashion while it works it's way into a new ideal.

I made a set of transitional stays like that... Didn't work for me because of my 'rubenesque' figure. Stephanie R now owns them.
