You did a beautiful job.  I have seen the original in the book that you spoke of.  A great job of copying the pattern.
Those dresses were not made to be comfortable. Ladies of that era were made to stand straight and tall , so that they could attract a very eligible young man. Standing in the only position you can gives one a correct posture with the essentials thrust to the front and in full view for the attraction.

I love seeing this and your explanation was great...

I love clothing from other periods, and this is no exception! Its a beautiful little dress which looks and sounds like a lot of work has went into making.
Nice one! Smiley
