Bodice dress 1840

I started work on the bodice dress.I used the model by a dress from the collection of the Hermitage dated 1840. Sewing techniques of the nineteenth century costumes I found in the some books as: The Workwoman's Guide by a Lady, from 1840, where I found the patterns on the sleeves. In Bildindex I found some patterns of dresses from mid 19th century. My bodice I modelled with cotton linnen and then I cut from silk taffeta. I used the backstitch with a silk threads. Next will be to some work with piping.
