Guess what I did this weekend?
Bodice, fully constructed and lined. Boning channels down the center front "V"
Skirt - grey wool flannel along the top edge to pad out pleats. The top edge is curved to follow the "V" in the bodice. On the right is the center front slit.
"V" pinking, and trim pinned.
Sleeve constructed, sleeve pouf attached at sleeve cap.
Trim pinned in place on the bodice, sleeves attached. The shoulder and around the neck will have one more row of trim above the one already in place.
Still to do:
-Sew rings down center front bodice
-Sew hook and eye at "V" point
-Cartridge pleat skirt
-Attach skirt to bodice
That will complete the gown itself, then I still need to make a shirt and a false front for the bodice. Not bad for a couple of days of work!
