I have begun to sew my gown together. This is the lining and interlining as well as the finished front. There is boning built into the bodice to get the shape of a corseted body without my having to actually make a corset, which I would like to do someday. Doing it this way is much easier and cheaper. I have pictured below views of the bodice outside and inside.
These three pictures are of the finished front and views of the interlining and boning that strengthen and shape the garment .
This picture is of the lining of the inside of the bodice. It makes me think of Iron Man or should I say Iron Woman, but its the lining and no one will actually see it.
