So I decided to make the Simplicity 8881 back lacing and closing in the front with hidden hooks and eyes so I can actually get into it myself. I also had to take an inch and 3/8 off of each of the CB of the back pieces because the finished product ended up being much larger than stated on the pattern. Since I'd already boned the inter layer, it was easier to just take the extra off the CB and move those boning channels over. Might not be the most correct way to do it, but it worked.

SO!

Once that was done, I put together the left side of the bodice, and then the right side of the bodice. Then I did the same with the fashion fabric. Then I laid the fashion fabric (velvet) right sides together with the boned interlining and stitched 5/8" seam along the bottom, up the CF, and along the neckline. I left the CB open so I could turn it right side out. Then I clipped the seam allowance and turned it all right side out.

Voila!
