The regency stays I have been making are ready for the final fitting – this really will be the moment of truth! If they are OK, I will add eyelets for the lacing. If not – start again 🙁
The shoulder strap is a long way from the tab. When I try it on myself, they might come closer, but if not, I’ll need a long lace! I won’t be wearing them over a turquoise t-shirt, by the way, that’s just so they show up in the photo.
Most of the eyelets will be down the two sides of the back, where the stays will be laced.
Meanwhile, a cactus which I was convinced had died has flowered! Here it is awake:
And here it is asleep! Isn’t nature amazing?
