The Guide to: Sewing your own 18th century stays using your custom drafted pattern
by Alicia Schult of LBCC HIstorical
This book is designed to accompany a custom stay pattern found on www.litttlebits.etsy.com. It will show you step by step with great photos and well written instructions how to cut out, sew, and stuff your new pair of 18th century stays. This book takes the guess work out of hard to read assembly instructions and can also be used as a guide to help you through any other commercial stay patterns which have hard to understand instructions.
I love history!
