Eau Claire, Wisc...
A historically accurate (as possible) set of stays (early corset) made for the underneath of an 18th century French court ghost costume for a Halloween show. Based off Butterick 4254.
I had to use zip ties because I cannot get steel boning where I live and did not have time to wait for it to come in the mail. For next stays I will use smaller grommets (also unavailable) and steel bones.
Stays will be worn by me in upcoming Halloween production.
Additional pics on show blog:
Cotton, drapery cotton lining, heavy duty interfacing, zip tie boning, grommets.
