About Samples: Samples are our final trial run of a design. Sample have been worn for fittings and photoshoots, and may have very minor signs of wear. 
The Charlotte Stays are based directly on an extant pair held in the collection of the Daughter's of the American Revolution (DAR) in Washington, DC. Their stays date to the mid-1830's, and were likely worn as bridal stays according to family provenance. This style would work for late 1820's to early 1840's. We have closely copied the cording details, embroidery, and softness of the original pair. 

These stays are lighter than the other 1830's style in the Atelier line. They are made without coutil, instead utilizing a soft twill and drab cotton sateen, as per the originals. The entire body of the stays is cut on the bias, making for a very soft, comfortable fit. Cording and synthetic whalebone provide structure and support.

Details:
  • Custom-dyed cotton sateen fashion fabric
  • Twill lining
  • Synthetic Whalebone in 4mm & 6mm widths
  • Curved wooden busk
  • Contrast machine embroidery and stitching in heavy thread 
  • Alterable strap length
  • Scallop cording details
  • Antique brass grommets
  • Machine sewn
