Bodice Back Finished!

The bodice pattern has 3 very large box pleats in the back.

For this dress, the pleats did not look right and the whole back of the bodice seemed to long.

So, I experimented with pinning it up several different ways.

I ended up sewing closed the box pleats and trimming it down, making a point in the back.   And, I just finished doing the bottom hem so that step is off the list.

Next step, finishing the hooks and eyes on the front closing and finishing the decorative strip down the middle of the front.
