Regency Stays

Added Oct 5, 2008

Los Angeles, Cal...






The stays that I made for my regency gown and any future regency gowns if I go to any more events. I used the Mantua Maker pattern. I had to add 1" to each of the gussets to accommodate my curves. Instead of using the busk that I ordered I made one out of a paint stick. I really like the look that this one gave me, but I think that I would like to have one that is corded instead of boned. The stays held up quite well with all of the dancing.

Material Notes

100% cotton sateen, 100% cotton canvas, 100% cotton poplin, satin ribbon, self bias binding, 1/4" spiral boning, 1/4" steel boning, paint stick, 1/4" grommets/eyelets

    I’m about to dive into another set of stays myself. These are really beautiful and give you the perfect silhouette! Great job!
