Stays are an essential foundation garment for every woman interested in wearing 18th century dress. This two-day workshop will teach students how to fit and construct an 18th Century pair of stays using the Scroop and Virgil’s Fine Goods Augusta Stays Pattern. Attendees will learn the details on altering a pattern, fitting, and stitching their own pair of stays for the perfect 1775-1790 silhouette customized to their figure. 

The Augusta Stays are the perfect foundation to any late 18th century wardrobe. They use a pattern based on numerous extant late 18th century stays and a sophisticated boning layout to achieve the fashionable silhouette of the late 1770s and 1780s.
