Commercial corset and stay patterns can be difficult to make. The instructions are never strait forward and the final fit is usually less than desirable for all that work. Making a mock up and not knowing how to tailor commercial problems adds to the stress of what should be a fun and satisfying project. This guide will make it easier and enjoyable to make a historically correct pair of 18th century stays. This book is meant to accompany a custom drafted stay pattern which can be purchased at www.litttlebits.etsy.com.
This book is filled with step by step photos and easy to understand instructions using historical and updated methods to speed the process along, so even a new seamstress with no notion of sewing lingo can finish a pair of stays that will look like they came from a museum. In addition your stays will fit properly and feel amazing. Using this method takes away the stress and you will enjoy making them, maybe even learn some new facts along the way. Remember if you get stuck, I am just an E-mail away.
