Basic Renaissance Stays – WIP 1

These stays are currently on my sewing machine.  The pattern has five panels to distribute the significant amount of bias needed to fit the customer properly.  It is made with two layers of hemp/linen canvas, ready for full boning, and the bottom edge is bound.  I ran short of boning, so I’ll finish this project after more boning arrives at the end of the week.  At that point I will insert the remaining boning, secure it, bind the top edge, and grommet it.  The shoulder straps are removable.
