Okay, I may be doing something seriously wrong with this pattern because my pleating on the skirt is not allowing it to fit with the bodice width. I am doing the option with the open skirt and petticoat, although I have also opted for the en fourreau back. Before pleating the skirt to fit the bodice it measures out to around 47 inches per panel with seam allowances taken into account. I am having trouble believing that 47 inches can be pleated to fit into the roughly 9 inches that it needs to to be sewn to the bodice. What am I doing wrong? To give you some back story, I made a zone front modification as in the following website . This still should not affect the bodice markings as to where the skirt aligns, however. Any help you can suggest would be great, thanks so much! I am very stumped. -Ashley

The self-made trim, the buttons, the cuffs, so many lovely details. But I'm awfully glad the mdoern woman doesn't have to wear stays! I understand one of Eliz I's pearl-encrusted dresses had a little wooden dowel hidden in a fold in the front so her dancing partner could grab on to it and lift her when swirling about.
