What was your source for this sewing project?
Online Photo or Website
Name of website or photo Vogue 7733
What materials did you use? black velvet, black stretch lace, featherweight boning, black interfacing, organza ribbon, grommets
What are you most proud of? overlaying the front panels of velvet with the stretch lace. The lace would not stay in place, so I "pin basted" the entire surface to eliminate shifting while I basted them together in the seam allowances.
What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pre-measure all the pieces to make sure the width and height is appropriate for the wearer. This is a very fitted boned bodice and needs to fit perfectly. There are eight seams, since it has princess seams, and only so much can be adjusted with the lacing.
