Why no, this is not a new project. Actually, it's quite an old one...and now it's for sale on my Etsy. There's absolutely nothing wrong with these stays...except that they don't fit me. I made them, and they were beautiful...and they weren't what I wanted, so I made another pair. As such, however, they're basically brand new. I put them on literally long enough to decide I didn't really love them, and then took them off again, and they've been staring at me mournfully ever since. It is time for them to go to a good home.
