Silk Wedding Bodice

Reproduction

by: Laura Wiggington

The reproducton of this bodice was made on a standard size 10 form.  The fabric for the reproduction, silk seersucker, was chosen for the stripe and stiffness of the fabric.

The ornamentation on the collar was hand-beaded with a crochet stitch on silk organza.
