Loosely based off of the Victoria Era (ie: the ruffles and peplum are supposed to give volume and I gave it a sorta corset type thing). First time I’ve used boning! Very exciting. Stretched a bit when I was taking it off of my dress form, though, which is sorta annoying. That’s what I get for not putting in a zipper! Clearly I’ve been sewing with jersey too often… Much more forgiving about these things. What can I say? Zippers sort of terrify me!
Cotton, Boning, Gold Ribbon, Old cut up bra (hey, I had to get the cups from somewhere!)
