I am not the best corset maker on the planet but I always give it a good try. So, let's start with the Regency one as that is the one I made and finished first.

Okay, I am not wearing a period chemise - sorry folks, but this is it done and on!
|These half stays are perfect for me. They hold up and support comfortably!|
Yes, this one! I have absolutely adored this Redingote for many years. Boating on our Bay is very chilly and windy so I hope to find a nice wool for this. If I can find the red, great. If not it will probably be dark blue or whatever I can find that will work. I am worried about the chapeaux for the outing. We will be on 18th century sailing vessels, on the bay with hopefully a good wind for a good sail but that doesn't bode well for bonnets! Any suggestions?
Thank you Sabine for your research and inspiration. You rock! :)
