My beautiful spangled antique fan came. It's beautiful! It's bigger than I pictured. The guards are 14" long! Photographing this has proved difficult, but I'll share my attempts.

Well, I got the boning in, attached the facing and tacked it by hand, made and attached the collar and hand sewed the collar lining to the inside of the bodice, then marked for button holes. I had to stop at this point because I don't have enough buttons to finish, so I'm going to move on to a skirt I want to make.



I'm looking forward to getting to the trim, but I want to do the buttons and button holes first so I can be sure the placement is perfect.
