New York 1950s 1490 Two-Fer, Part VI: Most of bodice

I probably overdid the fitting on this, but whatever. 

I haven't resized the skirt yet, but the bodice is almost done; I just need to finish the armscyes and do the buttons and buttonholes.

This is a weird pattern--the housedress version is very blousy, but then they expect you to use the same pieces for the sundress, and I don't see how that can work all that well.  Yes, the gathered parts would line up with the straps, which are very wide (so it's more like a sleeveless dress than a regular sundress) but I had to take a lot of width out under the arms and up the back, and I can't see a sleeveless dress looking all that great with so much design ease.
