1879 Stays for Girl 7-9 yrs (20 Chest)
Ageless Patterns are reproductions from actual 1800's
patterns. 5/8" seam allowances and grain lines have been
added. These patterns were sized for the original time
period so it is strongly recommended that one make a muslin
mock-up to adjust to today's figure (specifically the waist)
...the ease and fit of the by gone days are not what we
use for today's fashions!
The front of these stays is made partly made of elastic and partly of drilling. all the other parts are cut of drilling. The stays are bound with linen tape at the top and bottom, and are furnished with eyelet-holes in the back, into which laces are run.
