Yes, I can’t seem to get enough stays around here. Right after finishing my regency stays, I started back into my 18th c ones. I made one more cardboard mockup, because the front panels were still too narrow.
I experimented with lacing these up as much as possible when I tried them on, so I think it’s actually just a little tigher than I would normally want. But this is with cardboard, so we’ll see when I get to the fabric.
On to the real thing!
