My third attempt on 18th century stays. Made of silk (outer layer), linen (three inner layers), cotton bias, silk - and cotton thread and boned with cable ties.

I wasn't happy with the fit of the red pair (and I hated the purple), so I made me a new pair. These are really comfortable and I like the silhouette they give me. (What I don't like is the horrible binding! Please ignore that! To bind stays are boring and I'm not good at that at all.)

I used a pattern (but made them fully boned instead of half) in Corsets and crinolines by Norah Waugh.

Enjoy them (or not)!

Thank you and I'm sure yours will! =)

I'm re-doing these, new lining and binding. But I really like to make a completly new pair. (I hate that I'm sush a perfectionist! =()

I really appreciate the fine handwork you did on this. To solve the binding problem? Try using the same color binding so it won't stand out so much. I don't particularly like to do binding either. It always ends up looking lumpy.

Thank you so much!

Good idea... but I think it can be hard to find a matching binding. You can make it yourself of the same fabric as the stays, but... I guess I'm too lazy. ;P

You can get little bias binder makers at the sewing store (Jo Ann's or Hancock Fabrics). Makes it easy.

Never heard of Jo Ann's or Hancock Fabrics. Maybe because I live in Sweden...

Ah well, I'd guess that sewing stores there would have them.
