White linen stays done! This is a smaller version of the first stays i made in high school and that one i made from alternating the buttericks pattern B4484. I feel like I should have made them even smaller in the back but they will do for now.
I made the stays in 2 layers of linen and used strong plastic boning. You can find it here in my store.
On the edge i used white cotton tape. I sewed it from the front and folded it over to the back. Seams and lacing holes I sewed with vaxed linen thred. You can find ribbon here, and linen thread here.
I will make a new bump roll soon, this one is from high school… The shift is actually my medieval linen underdress, its the same pattern anyway.
The petticoat I made from the stiffest old sheet we had in the house, antique ones are alot better and stiffer than modern ones.
