The petersham ribbon I ordered for a belt for my wool arrived today. I ordered some of the espresso and loden. The espresso is too dark, almost black, so that one will get put aside for use on some other project. The loden green goes well and looks wonderful with the new belt buckle. I do need to remove the bottom button on the dress to accomodate the belt. I thought I would have to but waited on it. I will probably take all the buttons off and redistribute; this is a good thing as the buttons were a bit far apart.
I'm almost done with a pair of drawers; once those are finished I'll do the belt. By that time the bonnet form should be in and I can finish that.
