Things preventing me from having new stays are:
- limited time (I still need to mend my petticoats and make a pocket)
- limited resources (I have outer fabric in the stash, but no lining or interlining)
- limited funds (I still have a ball ticket and drop spindle to purchase...)
To some, with stronger constitutions and sounder logic, the choice would seem apparent. But I am fretting over this considerably.
