Oddly enough, as my weight is (sadly) once again the same that it was when I made them, the stays don’t fit as well as they did back then. This is why I show them on the dress dummy. My weight has redistributed itself and my waist is narrower while my breast has gone in the opposite direction. So while I can lace them completely shut at the waist, I have a much bigger gap over the chest that I used to.
So I think I will need to make a corded stomacher, otherwise the lacing will be a bit uncomfortable as my more...squishy parts… I don’t think I have any pink linen left, so it will have to be white. Of course, I could do new stays, but I don’t wasn’t to, not right now.
The dress dummy that is closer to me in size, is currently not available, that is why the stays are photographed on a smaller one.
