Regency bodiced petticoat - progress

Here is a link to the instructions how to adjust a Sense and Sensibility Regency gown pattern to make the petticoat. http://sensibility.com/tips/how-to-make-a-regency-bodiced-petticoat-from-the-regency-gown-pattern/The instructions on how to construct the bodice are very good, but do need to read them carefully. It took me awhile to digest and understand what is happening. As I am wearing this petticoat over chemise and stays, I only need to put darts on the bodice. I did lots of fitting by myself. I pinned the back and then put the bodice on through my neck and arms (it was possible at the stage before the darts were put in).

I started this project about a month ago. I did a little bit each time whenever I found time. Each time, when I finished, I put them all into a big zip lock bag with proper labels. 

What is next:
I still need to trim the edge of the bodice, more fitting to be done.
I have done the hard part, next is to put waistband and skirt on, then it is fully finished.

Here are some pics

They look wonderful :)) And thanks for the inspiration - I have to make a set this week as well.

Thank you and Happy New Year.
