I feel like Marie Antoinette in these stays. So feminine and elegant, yet still comfy and fun.

These stays are my version on Butterick 4254, view B.

    You absolutely look like a queen, so pretty :-) I adore this pattern and will hopefully be able to make this myself some time.

      Zip ties has many of the same qualities as whale bone and reed, and is often jokingly referred to as “plastic whalebone” by costumers.

      Thank you! These are very supportive, to the point where I can lean back into it if I get tired. Also, they are totally comfortable enough for daily wear!
