Holy crap you hand-sewed *internal* seams? O_O That's dedication. I applaud you. Also, the dress is beautiful. Wink

This is fantastic! you did a great job with the grommet-holes-- that's always my source of frustration. I should try doing a hemp-cord bodice; is it more comfortable than plastic or steel boning?

"Holy crap!" was what came to mind when I saw this, and I see I'm not the only one with this reaction. Smiley  This is beautiful work, with amazing attention to detail.  Need I even point out that THIS ROCKS!

Wonderful!  Amazing!  Super-de-duper! And I say this not only as an admirer, but as a fellow seamstress (I bow to your skill and patience) and (former?) SCA member myself.  You make me regret I never had the patience to try to recreate a period piece myself.

Wow, thanks guys! Smiley

@LadyUranus - Personally, I find the hemp boning WAY more comfortable than steel or cable ties.  It's more flexible, but is still supportive.  It seems to be more appropriate for cultures that have a rounded bust shape, such as the German/Italian Renaissance periods.  English/Spanish/French Renaissance have that more conical shape to the torso, and I don't think hemp boning would work for that - you need something more rigid.

Inspiration without application is moot.
