Another pair of stays but this time with Periwinkle linen! They are really the same as the green pair but different in many aspects too. Same pattern but this is a larger size that I also had to lengthen. I also did it entirely by machine (deadlines are looming!) except for the binding. I had to put that on mostly by hand because of the way it intersects and wraps around places with boning.
The view from my new work space! ;)
I also ventured into the cable ties arena. I never thought I would do that but I like how sturdy they are and easy to find (Hello, Home Depot!) and how cheap!
Shoulder strap with grommets for holes and ribbon to close (yes, I need to replace that with a ribbon that is not poly!)
I started out with a 20 yard role of linen from fabrics-store.com and it has turned into 2 regency petticoats, 2 pairs of transitional stays and 3 pairs of stays of this style. There is a gown and a shirt in the works with the 7 yards left. I did not make the petticoats or the transitional stays but just assisted :) I mention it because quite a bit of it was dyed another color with different Rit Dyes. It was cheaper to buy that much at once in white instead of getting a few yards of this and that and paying shipping several times. Who can decide on several projects all at once?! I will go into some more detail on how exactly that went with pictures in another post.
