Bodice WIP

I have just finished the Bodice for the top dress, it consists of 4 layers-front facing, velvet (for padding), canvas (to help stiffen) and the lining, it also has a few bits of boning in there too.

Ive gone for a green silk taffeta material, it looks great in the light, and rustles when you move.

Im not actually making the bodice lace pink, i just stole it from an earlier corset to see what it looked like on.....Well now i play the waiting game, i need fur for the sleeves but that requires money, which i seem to be in short supply of at the moment, so may be a while till the next post.
