Once I had completed all four panels of the gown, I whip stitched them together at the sides and shoulders.
I also finished 4 more of the brooches I started last week, and applied them down the center front.
With the bodice assembled, it was time to plan out the sleeves. I zoomed in on the painting and traced over the lines of trim. based on the number of lines and the angles, this is the sleeve pattern I came up with.
The next step is to sew all the trim down and assemble both sleeves. Then comes the shoulder rolls, with more trim and more brooches.
