The original example that Norah Waugh drafted the 1793 stays (also in this folder)  from in her book which is pictured in this folder! Gotta thank Harman Hays for sharing this on Livejournal! I drafted this pattern out a while back but got stumped at how to properly construct it and do the vertical boning, and how big the bustle balls were. Now I know!!!  This is the interior of the corset btw.
