There has been progress, I swear. The underskirt is done (did I tell you that already?) and the bodice just needs buttons/buttonholes, sleeve trim, and the separate basque waist made (from JA's Patterns of Fashion). Then I need to make the garden hat.

I need to finish all this in time for the Belle Alley Weekend in NC next Thursday. What makes this tough to do is I have final exams beginning tomorrow. Two classes have classic exams, and one requires us to write not one, but TWO final exam papers. So I have less than a week to study for 2 exams, write 2 papers, and finish this outfit. Can I have some sewing minions, please???

But this time, it's got a waistband and a ruffle!! Whoo hoo!



Ick...the petticoat is NOT all shiny like that in real life. Flash makes it look like that!

I've got the front sewn to the back at the right side and the front hem done. Need to do the left side placket, back gathering/waistband, back poufs, back hem, closure buttons and button holes, and ruffles.

Here are the progress photos with the skirt pinned to the mannequin

I have the petticoat train clipped up so the cats don't ruin it. They already put a big ole hole in it about 6 inches above the top ruffle when they went tearing across it at mach 9.
