One of those off topic posts

Small Transitional stays

I'm very happy to announce that I have finished my first pattern for sale.  It's of a pair of 1790's stays I have in my private collection.  This is to the original measurements and would fit a smaller sizes (a small busted 2 to a large busted 6 due to the squish factor and the lacing in both front and back).  the pattern is based off the blue stays that you can see at the bottom of the link.

The pattern is currently only for a size small but I do plan on adding a medium and large in the near future. You can buy the fat quarter at spoonflower.

I have made my own short stays from this pattern (with modifications because I'm not a small person) and LOVE them. I actually have two pairs. Here's the red pair:

I don't think I have a picture of the blue pair, but I wear them with pretty much every single Regency gown I've made. The blue pair are a bit hardier because of the fabric I used. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
