i will have to keep that pattern in mind when i actually make this civil war dress for the ball im probably going to next year
as of right now i have all the pieces cut out. im just at that point of how to make this w/o seeing boning channels (or deciding if i care i can see them) i have 4 layers of fabric, but the top layer is organza, so its super delicate, then casa, then coutil, then thin light lining. it is lacing up the back, (because i fluctuate in weight from year to year, and its just my preferred way to close boned bodices) dunno. just know i am very much over it.
