A Dress for the Wedding

So my only brother got married a little while ago and I, of course, had to make a dress to wear.  I chose Vogue 1174, which is a Cynthia Steffe designer pattern.

 Here is the almost finished dress.  It just needs to be hemmed (the hem is pinned in the following two pictures.)

Here is a picture of me wearing the dress:

Here is the bodice in the earlier stages of construction (interlined in silk organza).

This picture shows you the foundation with boning.
The lining is sandwiched between the foundation and the fashion fabric.
