: : Parker,
: : The answer is Yes. It`s an authentic pattern. I`m not a big fan of stays either but all women wore a bodice or vest. They had to because the shift or chamise was so shire and loose. There had to be some support. Where all have you looked for patterns?

: I've looked through all the catalogs I have at home, Jas Townsend, Jarnagin's, Fox River, etc. vut the problem was I didn't know what it was called. Perhaps I found what I was looking for, but just didn't know it. Do you know what something like that would be called?
this may not be of that much help to you, but there have been a few posts discussing period dressing, as in the movie.
(I have tried to link the pages; if it doesn't work; let me know!)
