Guess What Came in the Mail Today!- Becky

Wool and reeds for my stay came in today!


I bought 2 yards of  Wm Booth Draper's "Light Blue Stuff", enough worsted wool for making mistakes. I also bought the closest thing to Colonial bones: reeds. I didnt know that I would get that much! Ive heard that plastic zip ties has the same effect and are cheaper, but Im a person who likes accuracy, even if this is my fist stay.
 Im happy and I cant wait to work on it!


  1. It will be interesting following the progress of the stays. I really enjoy your blog!

  2. Thank you! I cant wait to see my progress as well!

  3. How exciting! How flexible are the reeds as opposed to regular metal boning?


    1. I havent really played with them yet. I understand that if I was to make the hips, or hoops, of that century, I would have to soak and shape them to what I need.
