Stays

So I've "stayed" away from blogging about my stays for awhile. They have been progressing slowly...I had whip stitched the panels together but they were wrong (big surprise) and had to redo them.

Here's a peek...

Inside front left.

Inside front right...I've started applying the leather trim.
Two panels whip stitched together. I chose not to trim the panels with leather or ribbon...it has taken me forever to get this far. Since I'd like to wear them this season I'll save that for the next pair.
The front left panel.
Looking at the boning pattern, I'm glad I took the extra time to rip out the boning channels that I had sewn in the wrong direction. They now look so orderly and neat.
"Stay" tuned for my stays finale...sorry for the bad puns!
