Those steel-boned stays….

are apparently historically correct.

Meanwhile my stays are bound on the bottom… front.

It was a so frustrating job that took a break and finished my silk organza petticoat which has enough volume to sustain the skirt volume of a Chemise a la Reine on its lonesome…. maybe. But it does make me wonder whether it might just eradicate the need for any sort of pad, bumroll. We will see. Maybe.

To be fair, starting at the bottom of a pair of stays is starting with the most difficult part. Although it didn’t feel that difficult, it just took so long. Patience is not my strongest suit.
