Steamboat Dress Fitting Three

After incorporating Maggie's adjustments, here is the last fitting. I found that I still needed to take in the waist an inch or so but other than that it's perfect! Just for clarification, I did not use Simplicity 1818 to make this. I developed my own pattern based on the fashion plate from Godey's.

You'll notice the V is deeper and the waist is straight along with a few other differences. So, here is the last mock up before I cut the fashion fabric. I should state that the dress itself will not have the seam down the middle of the back.
