Cuirass Bodice finished ! (well almost)

Red velvet 1885's cuirass bodice, with black details. The bodice has small mutton sleeves and a manderine collar. The bodice closes with hooks and eyes, the black silk buttons are only there for decoration. All the black details are sewn on by hand. An alteration has to be made to the lining, it's to tight on my left shoulder, and a waistband needs to be sewn in, but I am happy to say it's almost finished.
