Thanks all, for the help on the stays! She really likes them; she used to complain that she looked 'fluffy' with the chemise on under the dress without anything over it. That is now fixed, and dresses which were about to be too tight fit just right.

Michaela, it's been a few months now with her wearing it; how does she like it? Is it holding up like you hoped or do you still need to invest in bones?

Thanks y'all!

Dana, we have kind of been avoiding most of the smaller summer events (it's sooo hot); the next one isn't until the end of September, and that will probably be her first time wearing it for any length of time. That just reminded me; I think I actually have a few bones somewhere that might be the right length....

By the way....I have used the duct-tape pattern making method for the stays and couple different corsets, and I love it! Highly recommended.

If you're ever in a situation where you need make-do bones, I really recommend zip ties. The long white ones from the hardware store. You have to trim the ends round, but they're a great modest stabilizer and of course washable. They're not as stiff as steels but of course much more rigid than cording, and a not wildly unreasonable substitute for whalebone.
