1850’s Day Dress Bodice

So despite a stomach flu, I finished the bodice of the 1850’s Day Dress!  It was quite a challenge since I had to redo the sleeves twice to make sure that they fell just right.  Oh how I love seam rippers!!

I added piping to the armholes, the neckline, and the bottom of the bodice.  I didn’t add the undersleeves in the picture, but I will be making them to fit under the pagoda sleeves.  My plan is to begin working on the skirt this weekend…not sure if I am going to add flounces or not.  I guess it depends on my patience level!

Enjoy your Friday everyone!!
