Constructing the bodice was relatively simple, I basically constructed it by draping and having a mix of the back of an Elizabethan dress with scooped neckline and the front of a Robe à la francaise lining in mind. Sounds weird? I guess it is, but those seemed the two patterns that resembled the painted bodices most.

Here’s what I came up with; the armholes and bottom seams are not finished yet, and the golden guards are not entirely sewn down (which must be done by hand).

I think it looks good so far 🙂

Follow me to the sleeves, which I’m making simultaneously to the bodice!
