    Gorgeous. I love the contrast with the trim.

    I once made a petticoat and matching “corset” bodice. It didn’t have any tabs but being worn over the petticoat skirt which was “padded” in the hips it wasn’t a problem. The one time I wore the bodice without the petticoat, it really dug into the hips and was agonisingly uncomfortable!

    Once I had a pair of the effigy stays, I decided that separate “corset” type garment for Elizabethan would also be a tabbed effigy stays!!

    Yeah next is to make a more period type linen smock or shirt. I only recently heard that box pleating is a no-no. Whoops! Gah, the more I learn the less I seem to know :(
