Courageous young woman, I salute you!

Thanks for the explanation. I hadn't realized that you made up your own side back piece and apparently cut off all the peplum-type pieces (basques, I think I've seen them called). From looking at various patterns from the 19th century, I think the usual thing is to have two or three darts on each front piece, a side back, and a back.

Why did you cut the side back piece (3) out of chiffon instead of dupioni, and how did you manage to make the bodice without using the side back piece? I love the drawing on the pattern website and would love to make this bodice. Thank you for posting the link to the pattern.

Wow - this is beautiful - your best one yet!!! I can see the peacock in the costumed costume ball - I think I get it.
