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.

      well, i already knew how to put boning into a bodice, so that wasn’t anything new, however, i did learn that you have to put the foundation zipper in facing out so that someone can zip it up for you! Oh, and waist stays can save your life!!
