Bath Stays Replica – 18th C

Bath Stays Replica:

Another early pair of our stays – based solely on  a pair of stays from the Bath Fashion Museum – this linen pair of stays have been made using as much of the original techniques as possible. The main goal for this pair was to learn how to get a better compact effect with the bones – floppy bones seemed to be a terrible syndrome with our earlier stays and very different to the rigid controlled stays we saw in the museum.

We were much happier with this pair and another step along the road to getting the techniques just right 🙂
