Start as you mean to go on

Hey guys, only finishing up my work for the day now. I felt I deserved a massive chipper after a long long day. Tried some different drafting techniques and worked directly on fabric for the bodice toile: From the French toile ("cloth") the toile is a basic version of the garment a designer produces to test the pattern. Think I've made a good start today and hopefully I'll be ready for the real gown next week. I've decided to keep the straps quite thick on the gown to support the feathers and give a more modest look which I think is still really important to Irish brides. Would love to hear some comments and suggestions guys,
