Regency Era short stays

This month we completed 3 pairs of Regency Era short stays (c.1815) for the Pallas Theatre in Washington D.C.

This one features delicate hand knit cotton lace


This one blue satin accents


And this one, pink linen.


All of our stays are made of medium weight cotton or coutil and fully lined in cotton muslin. We also add light boning for additional support. The corsets lace up the front and feature adjustable straps. For more information about our Regency era stays, please visit our catalogor email us at

About Susan

Hi! My name is Susan and I am a historian, seamstress, teacher, mother, and wife. My passion for history has manifested itself in the art of recreating clothing from different periods of time. Growing up in the American South, I am heavily schooled in the art of recreating clothing from the 19th century. After nearly a decade of immersing myself primarily in the Victorian period, I found the need to branch out and explore other periods of time. However, it is my connection with the American South and the clothing of rural America that continues to be the driving force behind my designs.
