Bodice (Posted 1st May 2012)
So after spending a few days (only a few hours in total) trying to sort out the bodice to fit me properly as apparently I have a size 8 chest but a size 12 waist and a size 10 hips I finally managed to get a decent size bodice. My gold sequin fabric arrived this morning so spent the evening sorting out that.
The way I decided to do the bodice in the end was to cut out the tulle and sequin and attach the tulle to the sequin fabric before sewing all the seams. So far I only have the back of the bodice done and need to go buy some satin tomorrow before I can do the ribbon detailing on the bottom of the bodice so I can sew one of the side seams together. Also have to be careful doing the ribbon as one side of the bodice will have a zip in it.
