1879 Natural Form "Monochrome" Dress - Truly Victorian Patterns

Patterns: Bodice>TV422 "1881 Dinner Bodice"
                Over-Skirt> TV324 "1878 Long Draped Overskirt"
                Skirt> TV221 "1878 Tie-Back Underskirt"
Fabrics: 100% Silk Dupioni, silver grey. 100% Cotton, grey print on black.
Measurements:
Chest: 40" across bust.
Waist: 31"
Hip: <50"
Hem: 41"

I did not take any progress photos for this dress because none of the patterns are confusing or have special construction issues. The over-skirt I made "out of the box", with no alterations to the pattern. The skirt is also unaltered, with only hem ruffles added. I altered the bodice in the back by splitting it to form tails.
