Fantastic, i'm glad i read your earlier posts about the stomachers, they had continued to irritate me. so i think i may use hooks and eyes to attach them so i have the option of having a few. thats if i am not sick at the end of embroidering the first one, lol. Yeah i bought the butterick pattern the other day, i'm just waiting for it to come through. although it's in a polisaise style isnt it ? should i just not bunch it up at the back and let it fall naturally once i've done the pleats and whatnot? anyway, thanks for putting up with me you're a star! ( your website has taught me loads!) x

Thanks so much! I used mostly home decor fabrics from JoAnns and I started off with a commercial pattern, but by the time I was done altering you can't even tell! LOL

No, that's okay! I used butterick 3640. I lengthened the stomacher and altered it to be one piece. Using the sleeve patterns, I widen and lengthen them. The pieces of the back of the bodice I used to fit to my body first and then totally remade into a pleated back. The skirt I drafted free-handed. If you are interested, my website shows more on how I made this costume: [link]
