Chemise a la Reine is complete

I put the lace on yesterday, and did the hem this morning, which means the chemise a la reine project is complete. I finished binding the stomacher of the stays, and the tabs on one half of the stays. Here's some pics of Antoinette in all the pieces, including the stomacher of the stays.

And I started attempting to draft the pattern for the 17th cent dress, using the pattern in Period Patterns for Stage and Screen. Hopefully this will work! I've never drafted a pattern with such steeply curved seams before...
