"Relined" the third dress
I made a descision to take the original bodice off the third dress, as it really spoilt the silhouette, once the shawl was over the shoulders. A second bodice is now complete and in place...this one made from fine, soft vintage cotton with an antique lace overlay; it looks so much better and relates far more to the bleached and stained curtain lining of the skirt. Here are some images of the development ( I shall not be uploading images of the finished works untill the time of the Colchester Exhibition).
