There has been progress on my stays. The surly one came and visited last weekend and help refit (as much as possible) my leather stays and make a pattern for my new stays. We had a lovely time catching up and enjoying some good food and drink. I tried on my old stays (and the muslin that I made previously) and she identified the issues. She then tweaked the pattern and made a new muslin. I then sewed the boning channels and she did another fitting and made another pattern. There was a lot of netflix involved. M and the whippets came home and helped! After a lovely dinner at the POD, there was one more pattern made and we relaxed for the rest of the evening.

I raced sailboats on Saturday and spent Sunday recovering from a windy, wet day.

This Saturday, with M in NJ. I cut out the fustian and marked the boning channels. On Sunday, I cut out the fashion fabric (gray green silk/wool). I then sewed the boning channels. Next up is putting in the boning and the lacing holes. The final step is the binding after I make sure everything is ship shape.
