I was super smart at some point in the past and saved the Ralph Pink corsets before they were all taken down (sadly I don't seem to have been smart enough to have sent these to my home computer, and they only existed on my work computer which I no longer have access to) and was even smarter to print a couple of them, the smartest of which was the 1780s stays. I found them the other night and compared them to my pattern pieces. Mine are considerably larger, but I have to keep reminding myself that my pattern is MUCH too large to begin with. I'm going to make a mock-up of them this weekend. They're a little small for me, of course, so my only real decision is how much to add, and where.

I didn't get home until almost 2am after last night's game. We were sitting so far down in the stands, which was awesome, but we had to look up so far to see the (ENORMOUS) screen. A disappointing game to say the least... But today the sun is shining and my window is wide open, and I'm filling my day with family and friends and a little cleaning and sewing.

EDIT: I added 1" to the back (well, really 3" to account for a 2" gap) and 1.5" to the front, and the fit is really, really close :O I pinched out 1" at the waist and 1.5" at the bust, so I think I might switch the additions to the side or side-front seams instead and then proceed full steam ahead!
