Okay, so here is the boned bodice foundation I've been working on for my couture class. This is for the Vogue pattern dress I had posted a while back. The foundation is made out of cotille which I bought from the school, never seen this stuff before, its for making garment structures. This bodice is made of 8 pieces, has boning sewn all the way around, and sewn in bust cups.
I wasn't really keen on posting a photo of me in the bodice foundation yet but the dress form photos really weren't doing justice and this was a cool angle my friend Tarina tried. The next step is the orange satin and leopard print silk chiffon layers of the bodice which I am now working on. So with lining, this bodice will have 4 layers. Kind of crazy but the final product is going to be fantastic!!!!
