Adding trim to the bodice

by Sophea

I had to unpick the bodice to add box pleats and bias binding to the stomacher. The bias on the stomacher is strictly for aesthetics and I bonder webbed it on; if this was for an ongoing performance I would have attached the stripes and bias more securely. I really like the finish of bias, especially on a panto style costume like this one. It does require a lot of hand sewing so isn’t ideal if there is a lot of time restrictions.
