Vogue 8723 Preparation

My busy work season is finally over and I'm ready to start working on the lace dress, the wedding is around the corner, so I'd better step on it!  It's taken a bit of time to decide how to make the bodice.  Since it's my first time working with lace--I'm treating it as an underlined garment, you can see that I've basted the darts and the edges.  I'm using Ambiance as the lining and underlining, I think it will work out alright.  The lace itself is medium weight, so I'm not going to put anything too stiff underneath.  I'll keep you posted on my progress.
