Happy New Year everyone! It’s been madness here in terms of stay-making. I’ve got Olympe’s final pair in-progress, all the boning channels stitched, with one side boned.
A close up of the boning channels, complete with bones, in Olympe’s creme and goldenrod stays, in progress
Here’s how Olympe’s stays are coming along. We made changes to the pattern based on the pink prototype.
I’ve put the pink prototype stays up in the Etsy shop, for anyone looking for a pair to buy *right now* with no waiting. I’m also determined to try out some new methods and patterning on a pair for myself, to explore the silhouette of the 1780s, and to finally have a proper pair for my own body.
