More mini toile photos

I wanted to make the waistline lower, so these were the results:

Had a go at a barrel cut bodice, but it didn't really work out.

So I returned to my original bodice and extended it to drop the waistline.

Final mini toile!
I don't want my final dress to stick out at the sides so stiffly, but I think once it's sewn up in a nice drapey silk, it'll fall flat rather than stick out like that.  I'll start putting a normal sized toile together after my work placement, so I'll be able to see then.
I've really enjoyed having a play around with shapes and seeing how they change the garment.  I actually had to be quite strict with myself, as it would have been all too easy to go off on a tangent and spend the whole project faffing about with miniature toiles, rather than getting round to finalising a design!
