Vast tracts of land

Last Friday I had the opportunity to break in my new stays. The pros are that they are really comfortable and, if I may say it myself, very pretty. The cons are that they are, in their brand new and un-stretched state exactly the right size. Which means they will become too big soon, even is I stay the same weight. How I managed to make something that will be too large is a mystery, if I err in size when I make garments too small. Oh well. It's not that I mind making stays exactly. I also need a little more boning in the front, even if the back and sides worked very well with few bones.

My darling took a few pictures of me, which perhaps wasn't the best of ideas. I have the distinct feeling that his focus wasn't exactly on the stays...

Very,very pretty stays!
It's comforting to know that you can get good support for us curvy girls without going fully boned. I think I will rethink the boning plan for my stays...

You do lovely work , as always.
However, I'm reminded of a line from a favourite
author of ours , " The iceblue silk made it aloof - in any warmer colour, it would have been
an incitement to riot."
any revolutions lately ?
