HSF 12: Shape and support

For the HSf challenge no 12, I had planned for a while to make a new pair of stays and to use the online pattern to which someone in the group once linked: http://www.scandinaviantailoring.com/dtta/interactive/korset_1/index.htm. 

Pour le défi no. 12: Shape and support je voulais faire un corps de baleine dans le style du 18e en utilisant le patron en ligne indiqué par une autre membre du groupe un jour. 

I made trial stays with my measures and found them too large - then took 5 to 10 centimeters off for the final version - and they are still quite large. When they are laced, they copse indeed. But there are very comfortable and were easier than my first pair of stays. 

J'avais fait un essai avec mes mesures et c'était trop large, ja' alors enlevé 5 à 10 centimètres à toutes les mesures. Le résultat final est toujours assez large. En effet, quand c'est lacé, tout ferme. Mais c'est très comfortable et c'était plus facile à facile à faire que mon premier corps de baleine. 

What the item is: 
A pair of half-boned stays, more or less 18th century

The Challenge:
 No. 12: Shape and support 

Fabric:
Cotton Coutil 

Pattern: 
found online
Year: 
late 18th century
Notions:
thread, steel bones, caps
How historically accurate is it?
I'd say 50% or less - the silhouette is and the eyelets are not metal, unlike my first stays, but it's not historically accurate

Hours to complete:
20, at least, I think more 
First worn:
For the pictures and today
Total cost: 
60 $ - I had to buy the coutil and the bones...
