Summary

The Antoinette 18th Century Cap and Stays pattern will help you create an historically accurate corset, or “stays” as they were called, as well as a delicate flouncy cap modeled after the styles in the 1780s. There is even a bonus pattern piece and instructions for an easy neck handkerchief. The stays feature several channels with narrow boning, tiny eyelets, and a bias tape finished edge. You can make the stays with metal eyelets or historically accurate handsewn eyelets. Tutorials for the handsewn eyelets as well as how to accurately lace your stays are included in the pattern.

This pattern was made in collaboration with Olga Watkin of Swish and Swirl, and is designed to fit over her “Georgiana 18th Century Undergarments” Pattern (available here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/646867394/pdf-pattern-ss1740-02-georgiana-18th?ref=related-3 ). With both of these patterns you can create a complete set of authentic 18th century undergarments for your dolls!

Fabric: 1/4 yd 45” wide main fabric


NECK HANDKERCHIEF:

STAYS:

Suggested fabrics: Cotton, linen

Notions: package of 1/8” (3mm) wide zip ties *or* 3 1/3 yd of 1/8” (3mm) wide boning, 3mm eyelets with washers, 1 1/2 yd of ½” single fold bias tape, 1 ½ yd of 1/8” wide cotton twill tape, matching thread. If making the version with straps, you will also need an 12” scrap of ribbon for the front ties.

Eyelets Note: you will need an awl and eyelet setter for this project. A punch type tool will not work. You will also need eyelets with washer backs as this will prevent them from popping out. If you plan to hand-sew the eyelets instead of using metal eyelets, you will need embroidery floss, embroidery needle, and sharp pointed awl.

Fabric: 1/4 yd 45” wide main fabric, ¼ yd 45” wide lining fabric
