Explanation "Stays and Corsets" ; "Stays" refer to the long garments on the pattern above, like the one's Jen made, and was used to describe boned undergarments until the end of the 18th Century. When the "Corset" was introduced in France as a garment in it's own right, the two terms became interchangeable.

We don't offer kits for this or any other corset pattern (apart from the Simplicity 9769) because it is vital that you make a mock up first. The corset is uniquely fitting garment and the only way to correctly establish the busk and bones needed is make a test garment and fit it first. We have many many corsets over many years and not used the same combination of busk and bones twice!
