This project was to help us with a basic understanding of how a boned bodice is constructed. We all had to have the same princess seam silhouette, but the neckline, length, and closure was up to us. The princess seams on mine have a skinny ribbon stitched over them for added detail. I also found the trim at the top that was crocheted with holes in it, so i weaved the same ribbon through to tie it all together. It is unfinished at the bottom so when it was being graded the inside construction could be graded.
