17th c bodice progress

I flatlined the fashion fabric with cotton canvas, put all the pieces together, and lined it with sateen. There is one piece of cable tie boning on either side of the front opening. Hopefully, it won't need any more than that, since it will be worn over my stays. It will get pressed tomorrow, and then I will try it on again and make sure nothing changed since the mockup. Then it's on to the trimmings and the sleeves and skirt. Not much will happen tomorrow, though, since I'm headed to Hollywood Studios for the day.
