Pattern Pack A: Size XS–XXL
Pattern Pack B: Size 18–26 Plus
As fashions evolved through the late 1820s through the early 1840s, so did the necessary foundation garments. Stays of the period generally retained the same shapes and seaming as earlier styles, but they shifted towards a curvier, hourglass silhouette. While this style has similar pieces when compared with our Regency long stays pattern, our 1830s stays have a less extreme push-up bustline, a lower hip line, and a higher, more defined waist.
- Designed for steel boning
- Curved wooden busk
- Bust gussets and hip gores
- Back lacing
- Adjustable shoulder straps
Includes multi-sized printed pattern, sewing instructions, fitting & mockup guides, and list of supply resources. You can also get all the specialty supplies for our corset and stays patterns in our corresponding kits. See materials list below.
This pattern is recommended for those with intermediate to advanced sewing skills.
Our stay and corset patterns are based closely on historical shapes and extant examples, but utilize modern construction techniques and materials to bring you an accurate silhouette in a sturdy, comfortable garment.
