I've been working on the velvet bodice. The lapel I added has been challenging to pattern and construct, but I think I've got it.

Here is the bodice all sewn together.

I experimented with adding the gold ruched detail to the bodice to see how it looked.

I put together the gold inner skirt. I also bought myself a hoop-skirt which I've always wanted. 

It really gives the skirt that extra touch, and it's really fun.
