This kit is designed to accompany the Redthreaded 1830s–1840s stays pattern. It includes all the specialty, hard to find materials that are not widely available in fabric stores. This kit does not include separate fashion fabric, but these stays can easily be made with just a single layer of coutil with a twill lining, or you can use an additional fashion fabric layer of your choice. This kit also does not include thread or bias tape for binding.
Each kit contains:
- English herringbone cotton coutil in white
- Straight steel boning, pre-cut and tipped to the average lengths needed for each size
- Boning casing
- Redthreaded-exclusive curved 14" wooden busk
- 3 dozen 00 nickel grommets (A setter is NOT included.)
- Ribbon for lacing
NOTE: The pattern is NOT included with the kit and is sold separately.
Our kits are individually sized like our patterns, so please be sure to select the appropriate size when ordering so that you receive the correct boning and material quantities. If you are between sizes, we recommend you size down. Please see our sizing page for more information and contact us if you have any questions.
