c.1775 Dress: The Bodice Yes No   You say the bodice will close edge to edge in the front. What is used to fasten it? Is it pinned shut? Was it normal for hooks and eyes to have been used? I feel like the closure method was neglected in the article. But otherwise, great article, I'm grateful for the step by step photos!

c.1775 Dress: The Bodice Yes No   Hi Carly, I'll be addressing the closure in the next article, once the skirt has been attached to the bodice :)
