Bodices done

Been a big week.  I've gotten quite a few projects comple in the last 10 days or so.
I haven't had time to write them all up, and will get to it later next week I hope.  I'm planning on going to an event this Saturday and to the Ren Faire on Sunday so I have a ton of stuff I wanted done.
Here's the details on the two bodices I finished last night at 3:00 AM!

Date: 2010-07Child's Reversable Bodice (Pink, Yellow and Green)

This item is designed for use by a child. My primary concern is for comfort and appearance and not period accuracy. My children love to go to renfaires and love to dress up. I needed to make this item look "period" while being as comfortable as possible. I made this bodice to be reversible since I have twin girls. Sometimes they like to dress alike and sometimes they don't. The bodice is pink on one side and yellow on the other. It was constructed with small rings on the sides so that I could tie it to the skirt. The bodice has a laced back and all the gromet holes were hand stitched.
