1780s Green Half-Boned Stays Finally Completed

I went ahead and finished these, even though I will never wear them.  I originally started these for The Revolution Dress, but I cut them too short for my long waist, so re-drafted my pattern and made a different pair instead.

So they sat rather unloved and unwanted for awhile, so close to complete.  Just a little binding on the tabs today, a couple additional grommets in the straps, and they were complete.  Why waste them?  It is still work I am very proud of!  Somebody out there, with a normal, non-freakish torso, will want them.  If this lady is you, then hop on over to my Etsy Shop and snatch them up before someone else does.
