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

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.

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.
