The second layer in progress. The first layer has wide seam allowance for the bone to fit in.
I put the two layers together and sewed them carefully at the seams.
I have prepared a pleated skirt. I has a small sweep :)
Oh, I love sweeps!
The brocade covering. I tried to match the pattern at the bust, it's not perfect, but it should do..
I cut the sleeve from the fitting and made a pattern from it.
