Be "uplifted" by Regency stays and let us help you make the perfect stays in your exact size!
In the early Regency period, the style was to discard corsetry and appear "as nature intended". But women who weren't blessed with the perfect figure still used foundation garments to form their bodies into the fashionable shape.
Our easy-to-use pattern, based on extant and pictorial examples, helps you make your own light, short-waisted corsets or stays circa 1800.
Made to Measure pattern in your personal measurements.
Also included are assembly instructions, embellishment suggestions, and the extensive historical notes you've come to expect from Reconstructing History.
