Well, I got the boning in, attached the facing and tacked it by hand, made and attached the collar and hand sewed the collar lining to the inside of the bodice, then marked for button holes. I had to stop at this point because I don't have enough buttons to finish, so I'm going to move on to a skirt I want to make.



I'm looking forward to getting to the trim, but I want to do the buttons and button holes first so I can be sure the placement is perfect.

This is going to be simply breathtaking! May I ask what pattern you are using, I adore the cut of the bodice!

Thanks! I'm basing it on TV 432, the 1882 Tea Gown pattern (without the Watteau back). I cut it shorter (and on an angle) so the underskirt could be seen like in the fashion plate that inspired me.
