Olympe’s Stays – Complete! Finito! Done!

I finally finished Olympe’s lovely cream, goldenrod, and powder blue stays.  Finally.  FINALLY.  It’s only taken me FOREVER.

They are too small for the smallest setting on my dress form, so just imagine a teeny-tiny waist and the tabs fanning properly around to the back.  And, of course, they are shown here over the petticoats just for display purposes…they should be under, naturally.

I’m very proud of these stays.  They were the first stays commission I took, and I learned SO much both in the pink prototype, and then on the final pair here.  They’re off to Olympe in the mail now!
