This is a rough outline of what the shape of my finished bodice would look like. I have boned where necessary to create a more corseted look for the bodice, without the actress having to actually where one. Ideally the dress and all of it’s parts needs to be easy to wear, put on and take off. Using two panels of calico for each bodice piece, I have created channels which will be mounted to my fabric, which means there won’t be any unnecessary stitching lines on my finished article. It creates a much cleaner look and also supports the actress and gives the dress shape.
