Whoohoo. Everything is back where it should be with the wool dress. The bodice is the right length, the hooks are moved over and a new collar is done. I'll have pictures later. The only thing I need are a few more hooks on the bodice, it doesn't lay the way I would like it to. Now on to the skirt. I will probably sew the skirt panels together by machine. I'll need to get some skirt lining fabric yet. What else...I'd love to have a new bonnet to go with this one as well.
I'm still working on my presentation for Harrisburg; no worries there. Going to my friend's book signing today; a nice break from sewing for a bit.
