Yes No   That curve at the bust is just so beautiful. I can't wait to see your replica :-D

Yes No   With how much baleen is used here I'm wondering if baleen breathes? Will you transpire the same way like with plastic?

The way the front is shaped is really beautiful, in my head I'm already looking for alternatives the baleen.

Yes No   I think replication is a very good term as we simply don't have the materials they had in the day. I cannot wait to see the next article, especially what the modern stay maker can use as an alternative to baleen.
